Meetings can be an expensive investment for any organisation. An average meeting can cost around £200 in staff costs alone, so leaving the room without any outcomes is expensive. Good design of meetings and meeting facilitation can help people to understand why they’re there, what is expected of them, and what the meeting’s success criteria are.
By investing a small amount of time before emailing an invite to your meeting means that your invitees can make an informed decision as to whether or not they attend. A well composed meeting invitation gives your invitees the opportunity to prepare what they need before they turn up to the meeting room, allowing for maximum efficiency. I have multiple strategies to design meetings, with over 100 techniques to employ.
Once a meeting gets going it can be easy for the group to become distracted. Helping a group avoid tangents and follow the design is a crucial role. You can easily waste the investment in designing a meeting without good facilitation. I am a qualified meeting facilitator, with over 1,000 hours of facilitation experience.
