    How the program works

    In the weeks leading up to your Effective Meetings session, your facilitator will provide a consultation conference call to find out more about your group and the current state of meetings at your company. The information you provide helps us tailor the training to address the specific issues your team is having with their meetings.

    The program itself is not a “typical” seminar or lecture. Your facilitator will train participants on a series of effective meeting formats, and then help practice them with fun group activities and discussions. The result is an effective development session that is both engaging and interactive.

    Afterwards, your facilitator will also schedule a post-consultation conference call to help your team sustain results. The phone call is an opportunity to discuss how the new meeting formats are taking root in your organization, and get answers to any questions your team has.

    Your investment includes

    • Pre-program consultation for customization of learning materials
    • Complete pre-event communication for operations and logistics
    • Tailored Effective Meetings training program
    • On-site professional facilitator
    • Delivery, set-up, and facilitation of training
