Effective Business Meeting Practice that Motivates for Great Results
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Leaders, managers at all levels, and top talent in the organization that want to improve their business meeting competency so that they can get the very best results from their leadership, teams and colleagues in pursuit of the organization’s goals.
Meetings are a part of everyday life and a necessary part of any functioning organization. A business meeting is a group of people who come together because of a (supposedly) common goal but can if not effectively managed, be quite a frustrating, stressful and non-productive experience. Poor performance in any meeting means lost trust and confidence (slow progress) demotivated teams and missed targets. Mastery of effective business meeting practice is vital for effective leader and leadership and driving personal and organizational growth.
Business Meeting Skills is a very practical and proven approach to effective business meeting practice that covers all aspects of the meeting process with particular emphasis given to preparation and implementation (placement and style) as it is in these areas that we see most business meeting facilitation fail. The program takes a holistic view of business meeting practice and introduces the delegate to the knowledge, skills and attitude required to confidently and properly approach any meeting and produce drive and focus for great results.
The program is well researched, knowledge-based and designed with the individual learner at the centre of the learning process which means that the course is extremely interactive and practical.

Preparation for Great Meetings
Effective Meeting Management
“The Business Meeting”
Each delegate is given 5 minutes to introduce, state purpose, place and take questions on the topic of their choice prepared as pre-work to the program. The class will then open up a 10 minute discussion that critiques their business meeting skills against those learned earlier in the program. To assist this process each member of the audience (all attendees at this meeting) will be given an observation checklist, which will be used to mark any comments against all aspect of preparation and delivery; the original sheets will be collected and later given to each delegate presenter along with a copy of the video for their review and self-development.
Key Learning Review
PRE- PROGRAM WORK
The delegates attending this course will be asked to prepare thought and materials for a 5 minute meeting that they have called to present a case to their boss and his management team (the class) for better conditions and more pay at work. This will be delivered to the class during “The Business Meeting” activity scheduled in Day3.
Each delegate will be asked to complete a pre-course questionnaire to determine their individual learning objectives. These will be used by the trainer to give on track training that is focused on the individual learner attending.
