Purposeful Meetings

Organisations and employees must communicate to be successful: meetings should be purposeful, planned, professional and productive.

Through facilitated activities, participants design, organise and conduct effective meetings.

Examples are used to explore the preparation required when convening or attending a meeting, including developing an agenda, reviewing invitation lists, choosing meeting venues and managing appropriate governance requirements.
