Achieving Meeting Excellence Program

This highly interactive program can be a game changer for your organization!  Based on our research conducted with our participants, people are spending, on average, 60% of their time in meetings and yet only 30-40% of those meetings are effective.  Most say the meetings they attend are a serious "waste of time".  Add to that the increase of virtual meetings and those percentages are worse.

A virtual or in-person workshop mastering the elements of highly effective meetings.

Many unproductive meetings lack preparation, focus and useful outcomes. In just one experiential session, your entire organization can shift the way it communicates to the business world.

  • Attendees are sneaking a look at their messages rather than staying focused.

“I wasn’t expecting that the class was going to be so interactive for a virtual session! The session was packed full of information. I learned a ton of tips and techniques and saw the concepts modeled first hand.”

“There is no better way to have a fundamental impact on an organization than by changing the way it does meetings… Bad meetings are the birthplace of unhealthy organization and good meetings are the origin of cohesion, clarity and communication.”
