Many meetings fail at generating desired outcomes because of lack of structure. If a clear agenda isn’t presented, and followed, expectations are not clear and it becomes easy to divert from the original goal. But having a solid agenda is not enough. No matter how well you’ve planned a meeting, there are other things that can derail it. We need to be skilled at managing meetings to increase both effectiveness and efficiency. This session is all about equipping you with skills and strategies to make every meeting matter more.
