New Zealand businesses spend millions per year on staff meetings, so it's important to not only get the most out of your time spent meeting with colleagues, but to assure the company also benefits from any relevant decisions or outcomes.
If you're responsible for setting or managing staff meetings, then the PD Training Meeting Management training course will teach you how to gain accountability, manage the participants, handle disruptions and ensure outcomes are followed through in a timely manner.
Starting with planning and preparing for a meeting, then moving onto managing participants and taking quality minutes to closing a meeting on time, this training course helps develop skills for handling every step required to manage meetings professionally.
This dynamic training course is available now throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

"Barwon Youth always conduct surveys to capture staff's feedback of each meeting, and PD day. All feedback was positive and an example is 'finally a relevant practical training that suits everyone from HR, IT, Management and all youth/social workers!' We will definitely use PD Training and in particular 'Karen' again for professional development in the areas you offer. We conduct training for all staff every two months, so you will hear from us most definitely."

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.

Getting the Most from Business Meetings
When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.

In your Training Management Centre you have transparency to the action plans so you can see what people are going to do differently.
Our systems and people make it easy to identify how you’ll be able to measure impacts,
and then report on the success in the weeks or months after training.
It’s surprisingly easy to make it so that your system can automatically be up to date with all the training record details you need.
