How To Have Successful Meetings

Inefficient meetings cost the UK around £191bn per year. Unnecessary and hijacked meetings can lead to disengaged workers, confused messages and crucially they impact to the output and bottom line. Our course exposes those meeting roadblocks and delivers tools to tackle them head on, before they happen. Each delegate will come away with a tool to calculate the actual cost of meetings. This calculator can be branded with your livery and implemented across your organisation.


All organisations need to have meetings. However not all of those meetings are successful or productive. To save your organisation time and money by focussing meetings, we identify the main saboteurs of meetings and tackle them in order for your teams to use their time efficiently. You will also learn the actual value of meetings and how to ensure your meetings are valuable.


Consider the main issues your organisation has around unsuccessful meetings. Do you have meetings about meetings? Do you come away unsure of actions? Do you wonder why you were there in the first place?

Who should attend:

Managers and leaders who need to know the cost and impact of meetings on their business, so all managers and leaders.
