Effective Meeting Management

Make meetings that matter. Stop wasting time and energy by learning how to facilitate better meetings.


Do your meetings need a makeover?

Are your meetings feeling lacklustre, unproductive, or contentious? You aren’t alone! At a time when coming together has never been so important many are wisely rethinking how they invest these precious hours.

This workshop explores the anatomy of the meeting, defining its true purpose and ensuring that every meeting is a meaningful and impactful tool. 


Done badly, meetings are not only a waste of resource (and money) but they drain morale and impede progress. This practical workshop supports individuals to grow their awareness and understanding of how to make their meetings matter through:

  • Defining your meeting purpose
  • Crafting your agenda
  • Priming your attendees to enhance the effectiveness of the time together
  • Engaging attendees to interact in a meaningful way
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Driving action beyond the meeting room


We ask that you bring along an example of a meeting in your organisation, which will be used to support the application of learning.

You'll come away from the course having had feedback, and gained practical insight to refresh and enhance the effectiveness of a meeting in our workplace.
