    Our Chairing Meetings Training Event Will Transform Your Meetings!

    Your Chairing Meetings Training Programme

    It’s a high impact, practical learning event that can turn your meetings into powerful and engaging events that keep to time, achieve results and motivate group members.  Delegates will discover how to chair a meeting following our proven techniques.  They will get a great return on their time investment and see immediate improvements to the meeting they chair.


    We use a series of simulated meetings during the chairing meetings training course to help delegates discover and practice the many techniques, tips and skills to transform meetings, chairing, personal contributions and outputs. They’ll have everything they need to chair highly effective, motivational meetings that people want to attend!


    It’s no secret that most people find that meetings are “too long” or “too boring” or even “a distraction from getting the real work done.” These preconceived views towards meetings puts a huge amount of pressure on the person chairing the meeting and in return either takes a big toll on their confidence and style or leads to a directive, controlling stance.


    So for anybody trying to chair a meeting the pressure, lack of skills, and confidence usually results in poor structure and control. This leads to the meeting getting bogged down in irrelevant detail and time gets wasted and lots of other problems occur.
