Who’s it for and what’s it about?

We all attend meetings and will have a view on those that were ‘worthwhile’ and those that, quite frankly, were ‘not worth getting out of bed for’!  A good meeting can leave you energised and with a feeling of accomplishment and how to plan, organise and facilitate such a ‘successful meeting’ is what this session is all about. Gaining a reputation for running useful and effective meetings is good for you, your immediate team and the Association as a whole.

Course content:

  • Reasons to have a meeting – how we use them, what are they for and making sure the right people attend
  • The need for a clear objective, structure and order:  what, why, how?
  • Crafting a meaningful agenda
  • Agreeing the ground rules to encourage commitment and engagement from all
  • Meeting etiquette and behaviours to both establish and to watch out for!


Learning Outcomes:

To increase appreciation and awareness of the need to:

  • Ensure the meeting has been called for the right reasons, at the right time and that the right people have been invited
  • Make the most out of any meeting space and time.
  • Have a clear,shared and understood objective for the meeting that is reflected in a meaningful agenda
  • Have agreed ground rules and acceptable behaviours
  • Participants will have had the opportunity to explore and discuss how best to plan, organise and run a successful meeting and will have a greater understanding and appreciation of what actions to initiate, and watch out for, to ensure that meetings they run (and are a part of) are successful.
