Meetings are an essential workplace tool and can be a powerful means of collaboration, ideation, decision making and more.

However, they can also be time consuming, and without proper planning and skilful facilitation can become a source of frustration. As flexible working increases and virtual and hybrid meetings become more common, it’s more important than ever that we have the skills to deliver effective meetings that make the best use of everyone’s time.

In this workshop, participants will explore best practice for planning and leading face-to-face, virtual and hybrid meetings.

They will consider how to be intentional and inclusive with their approach, taking into account the meeting format and the impact that has on setup, communication and overall dynamics. They will also explore interactive processes that can be used to boost engagement and encourage contribution in any environment.

Throughout, participants will be encouraged to apply learning to the meetings they deliver on a regular basis and identify actions they can take to lead more successful meetings going forward.
