Are you frustrated by the meetings you attend? Do you feel that they can be a waste of time? Meetings are an essential component of the life science and technology industries, but in too many cases they end up being badly planned and managed, simply due to lack of understanding or knowledge about the essential components of effective meetings.
This workshop will enable you to improve the meetings you attend, whether you are running the meeting or are a participant. You will learn the fundamentals of what makes meetings successful, and acquire strategies for what to do before, during and after a meeting to improve the productivity of all involved.
This workshop is highly interactive, and involves small-group discussion of case studies from the life science and technology industries. Participants will gain experience identifying the purpose of meetings, assessing and engaging attendees, and developing an agenda. They will have opportunities to practice some facilitation skills such as moderating conflict, increasing participation, and kicking off a meeting with a content and process ‘frame’. They will receive hard-copy and electronic tool-kits to improve their meetings.
