Research shows that the average individual in our society today will sit through 9,000 hours of meetings in their lifetime! That is over 365 days spent in meetings – not to mention the thousands of dollars spent on meetings. Meetings can be run efficiently and managed in a way that produces high impact. These techniques will allow participants to produce successful results from any meeting, whether as a participant or leader.

Who Should Attend

This course is appropriate for employees who plan or facilitate any meeting type.
