leading productive meetings training melbournePoorly run meetings can be real time wasters. They sometimes have poor, or very often, even no agendas! They run over time, they achieve very little and they usually leave people feeling frustrated and disillusioned! An efficiently run meeting on the other hand, can actually save time and lead to productive outcomes. They leave people feeling that they’ve actually achieved something!


Unfortunately, productive meetings rarely happen by chance. They are productive because the someone, usually the meeting leader, has done the necessary preparation to make sure the meeting they are leading is productive.
