Essential Meeting Skills

2.5 CPD

R244.34

This module has been designed for the individual or small groups but can be used as a guideline by anyone wishing to learn more about essential meeting skills.  People in small businesses do not have the luxury of free time to attend a meeting that has not been properly planned; is badly facilitated with the wrong people in attendance.

A substantial amount of time each year is spent in meetings.  Unfortunately, there is no scientific formula by which a meeting can be measured for success e.g. meeting outcome minus preparation time minus travel time minus actual meeting time = successful meeting.  Rest assured if it were that simple, we would be attending a lot fewer meetings
