Meetings can be a huge time and energy waste. More often than not we walk away wondering “what was accomplished?”. If you’re reading this, you’re either facilitating meetings already, or planning to, and you want to provide the best experience possible for your participants, whether they be staff, volunteers, or peers. You don’t want your participants to go through another agonizing meeting and waste their time. In this one day, intensive workshop, you will prepare the ground work for productive meetings. You’ll learn and apply the key skills that will help you run an effective, efficient and productive meeting such as: the difference between a facilitator and a trainer; setting an agenda, the importance of icebreakers; reading the crowd, dealing with difficult people; and the tools of the trade. In one day you can become a better facilitator and be on your way to creating great meetings. Space limited. See Course Outline.
