Conference Table

If time is money and people are our most important asset, why are so many meetings a waste of time?

One recent study reported 25 to 50% of the time people spend in meetings is wasted. In another report, 45% of managers indicated they thought workers would be more productive if meetings were banned one day a week.

We all know some meetings are necessary, but which ones?  How can you make sure your meeting isn’t just a big time vacuum? Find out during Practical Knowledge’s “How to Run an Effective Meeting” workshop.

We’ll help you answer these questions:

– What simple questions can you ask to determine if a meeting is truly necessary?

– Who should be invited to a meeting and who should not?

– Which three people can help your meeting run smoothly?

– What feature can you add to an agenda to help it be taken seriously?

– How can you end a meeting knowing action will be taken?

Who Should Attend?

Business owners who meet with clients.  Non-profits who work with committees and volunteers.  Managers with teams of employees.  Anyone who doesn’t want to sit through another pointless meeting!
