Fed up with long, time-wasting meetings? Do your meetings get side-tracked? You are not alone. The Harvard Business Review states that the average employee spends 31 hours every month in unproductive meetings. Turn your meetings around and take them from time-wasters to productive segments of your day.
The Management Solutions: Purposeful Meetings course is a one-day workshop that equips NSW Health managers with the knowledge and skills to facilitate effective and successful meetings.
The course assists you to:
- Assess if a meeting is required.
- Understand different styles of meetings.
- Plan and prepare a well-run meeting, including advice on agendas, minutes, and protocols.
- Identify the functions of an effective meeting.
- Manage behaviours and challenging participants.
Through facilitated activities, the Purposeful Meetings course provides you with the skills to ensure your meetings reach their potential by creating a respectful and open environment for collaboration within specific time-frames and a set structure.

I feel the course content gives clear direction around planning and running meetings and effective strategies for participating in future meetings. Information on chairing a meeting was of particular benefit having been a manager for less than one year.
