    Foreword:

    A University study has shown that companies are wasting huge amounts of money on inefficient meetings. The study conducted by the University of South Australia discovered that one in three workers admitted to falling asleep in meetings while 87% said they daydream and 26% said they did other work.

    Professor Terry Robbins-Jones, head of the University's School of Accounting and Information Systems says "People spend well over 50% of their time working with other people - making it the single most expensive activity in the business world - and yet we know nothing about it," he said.

    The University of South Australia study found that 46% of executives felt meetings were a good use of time, while 33% felt that - at best - they were fairly productive. These figures suggest that utilising a "meeting auditor" or "collaborative advocate" could produce cost savings and increased productivity benefits.

    This Meeting Management Training Course will assist participants with the appropriate meeting conventions and protocols to managing formal, informal and e-meetings. Participants will learn to apply tools and techniques in planning, participating in, and concluding successful meetings.
