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.

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.
