Certificate In Managing Effective Meetings Online Course

Achieve Your Goals With Effective Team Meetings

Achieve Your Goals With Effective Team Meetings

This course is targeted at individuals and groups who require an understanding of the basics of workplace meeting management, and more importantly, how to ensure that meetings are effective.

You are on your first project and you have to organize and manage the project kick-off meeting. What do you do first? Do you create the agenda or the invitation list? How do you run a meeting? What preparation do you need? All of these are valid and real questions you, as the meeting manager, must address. There is no doubt about it. Meetings require skill and technique in order for the meeting to achieve its purpose. Disorganized and poorly managed meetings waste time and hurt your credibility as a meeting manager. Consistently leaving a poor impression with the attendees will haunt you if left unchecked. 

The Managing Effective Meetings Online Course is designed to give you the basic tools you need to initiate and manage your meetings. You will learn planning and leading techniques that will give you the confidence to run a meeting that will engage your attendees and leave a positive and lasting impression.

By the end of this Managing Effective Meetings Online Course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic requirements for any meeting – agenda, invitations, roles, minutes etc.
  • Utilise the tips and techniques provided here to determine an appropriate approach to use for your business meetings in different situations.
  • Understand how technology can help your meetings.
  • List the logistical items that you may need to address for your meeting.
