Friday 19th January from 9 – 10.30 am on-line.

Think about the number of hours you spend a week in meetings of one sort or another.  How many of those have successful outcomes? A meeting of numerous members of the team is a massive commitment of resources, whether in person or on-line.

Ineffective meetings can be costly for all concerned. It requires great skills  to create the right thinking environment, resolve problems and prevent people disrupting the event. Difficult behaviour by one or more people can hi-jack a meeting, create negativity, or ruin the message you are trying to convey. Having the skills to prevent this, can save time, money, resources and your peace of mind.


You will be able to:

  • Define the components of effective meetings.
  • Build strategies to handle difficult behaviours.
  • Agree actions for change.


  • Aspects of an effective meeting.
  • Strategies for coping with behaviours.
  • Taking action.

This participative and practical workshop comes with learning material and a summary of the discussions. Your investment is £50/session.

“It’s so great to see the positive results amongst the regular attendees” Oliver Hemson, Director
