Develop the tools you need to run and contribute to great meetings

Meetings have become part of our everyday working lives but there are good meetings and there are bad meetings.  Bad meetings drag on incessantly, you never seem to get to the point, and you leave wondering why you were even there.  Effective meetings leave everyone involved feeling that you've really accomplished something and everyone leaves energised.  This course will teach you the differences between the two, how to run good meetings and what to do if you find yourself in a bad one!
