By the end of this course you will understand:
This course is aimed at anyone who chairs or will be chairing meetings. It is especially useful if you will be chairing meetings where it is important to get full participation and contribution from everyone present.
This course does not require any prior experience. If you already have experience of chairing meetings it is always helpful if you can bring with you examples of issues and difficult meetings that you’ve had to date. These can be committee meetings of any type.
We’ll happily create a custom course for you if that is what you would prefer.
Simply let us know exactly what you would like to focus on during your day during the pre-course consultation and we’ll create one just for you.
We customise it just for you:
