Beating Meeting Madness
Meetings are a major way we get things done in both our work and
personal lives. Often though, meetings test our patience and waste our
time. This session is for anyone who wants to run an effective meeting
or who wants to make the meetings they participate in more effective.
Key topics that will be explored include:
* Characteristics of effective meetings
* Strategies and techniques for effective meetings

Participants will be asked to engage in a meeting exercise and results
will be shared.
