Manage Meetings


The need

Meetings need to be managed so that the purpose of the meeting is achieved, the discussion stays focussed and all opinions are heard. Otherwise time may be wasted and participants may end up frustrated.

What will be accomplished

 Following the training participants will be better able to:


  • Assess when a meeting is the best form of communication
  • Set the purpose of a meeting
  • Identify stakeholders and participants
  • Define the course of the meeting in an agenda
  • Communicate with participants prior to the meeting to prepare them adequately
  • Guide the meeting to meet its purpose
  • Ensure that all participate
  • Recognise what makes for a poor meeting, and avoid that



The training is suitable for all those who manage meetings, or formally chair meetings
