Meeting Management Training Course

Did you know that businesses spend millions of dollars per year on meetings? But most of the meeting attendees of these reported assemblies spend their time daydreaming and even snoozing.

Meetings should be taken seriously by every employee as these are very important to the success of any organization. But,what if the meeting is dull and boring? Well, we cannot blame the attendees if they cannot focus during the whole duration. Well-managed meetings should be lively, engaging and informative enough to draw the attendees’ full attention and cooperation. The BIG question is how can the facilitator take hold of the attendees’ full concentration? Learn how by enrolling in a Meeting Management training course!

This Meeting Management training course teaches you how to avoid wasting time, how to create well-prepared presentations, how to keep the audience’s attention, etc. Participants will learn planning and leading strategies to give them the confidence to handle a meeting that will entertain attendees, handle disruptions and create a positive and long-lasting impression.

    Barwon Youth always conduct surveys to capture staff's feedback of each meeting, and PD day. All feedback was positive and an example is 'finally a relevant practical training that suits everyone from HR, IT, Management and all youth/social workers!' We will definitely use PD Training and in particular 'Karen' again for professional development in the areas you offer. We conduct training for all staff every two months, so you will hear from us most definitely.

    Jack was able to tailor the course to be specific to my role and he had some similar experiences within his career that he was able to refer to which made the training more relevant. He was able to identify my strengths and how I will be able to utilize them over the next 2 or 3 years.

    An Australian University study has shown that companies are wasting huge amounts of money on inefficient meetings. The study conducted by the University of South Australia discovered that one in three workers admitted to falling asleep in meetings while 87% said they daydream and 26% said they did other work.

    Professor Terry Robbins-Jones, head of the University's School of Accounting and Information Systems says face-to-face meetings are costing Australian businesses a whopping A$19bn a year. "People spend well over 50% of their time working with other people - making it the single most expensive activity in the business world - and yet we know nothing about it," he said.

    "Bearing in mind that collaboration - including the time spent in face-to-face meetings - probably accounts for well over half the total costs of any organisation, companies should be thinking about having a budget for it or monitoring how effectively it operates," he added. The University of South Australia study found that 46% of executives felt meetings were a good use of time, while 33% felt that - at best - they were fairly productive. These figures suggest that utilizing a "meeting auditor" or "collaborative advocate" could produce cost savings and increased productivity benefits.

    This Meeting Management Training Course will assist participants with the appropriate meeting conventions and protocols to managing formal, informal and e-meetings. Participants will learn to apply tools and techniques in planning, participating in, and concluding successful meetings.
