Conducting Effective Meetings

Conducting Effective Meetings


Event Overview

According to  Michael Doyle and David Strauss in their book, How to Make Meetings Work, approximately  15,000,000 meetings are held each day in the  United States and of those, 1/3 of them were deemed unnecessary by the people  attending them.  Have you attended some  of those meetings yourself?  What is your responsibility for ensuring those  meetings are not a waste of time?  How  can you help – even before the meeting begins – to guide the meeting to a  productive outcome?  This interactive  and strategic event shares a formula for success, regardless if you called the  meeting or were beckoned to attend.

Who Should Attend this Event:

People who  participate in meetings in any capacity (Leader, Attendee, Scribe, Timekeeper)  and who would like to make those meetings more productive.
