Managing Meetings

COURSE OVERVIEW

You are on your first project and you have to organize and manage the project kick-off meeting.  What do you do first?  Do you create the agenda or the invitation list?  How do you run a meeting?  What preparation do you need?

All of these are valid and real questions you, as the meeting manager, must address.  There is no doubt about it.  Meetings require skill and technique in order for the meeting to achieve its purpose.

Disorganized and poorly managed meetings waste time and hurt your credibility as a meeting manager.  Consistently leaving a poor impression with the attendees will haunt you if left unchecked.  

This course in the Managing Meetings is designed to give you the tools you need to initiate and professionally manage your meetings.  You will learn planning and leading techniques that will give you the confidence to run a meeting that will engage your attendees and leave a positive and lasting impression. You will also learn how to chair a meeting to achieve your objectives, and ensure your attendees leave with a positive and lasting impression of your meeting.
