Managing Effective Meetings

Managing effective meetings. All too often time and effort is wasted by calling and attending meetings which are not well prepared, have no clear purpose and where attendees fail to participate in making decisions. This course aims to assist in dealing with those aspects that inhibit the effectiveness of meetings and emphasise the best practices that make meetings successful.
