Description

Anyone who has attended a meeting that went on for too long or achieved very little will know the frustration. We all have busy lives and being able to conduct a productive and effective meeting is important to all.

If you’ve been tasked with organising, chairing or taking the minutes for a meeting, and you need it to be a success, then this course is for you. 

My team and I have put this short course together to provide you with the information, templates and techniques you need to run an effective meeting. 

The curriculum includes:

  • The preparations and planning for your meeting
  • An explanation of meeting roles and responsibilities for the Chairperson, Secretary and participants
  • Finalising the meeting outcomes and preparing the minutes
  • Quizzes and reflection activities to test and apply your knowledge
  • Fillable Agenda and Minutes templates to use at your next meeting.
Who is the target audience?
  • Business professionals who need to organise and run a successful meeting.
  • Members of community groups who want to organise and run effective group meetings.

Managing Director of Precision Group (Australia)

I have over 30 years of experience in operational management and 20 years in training across a number of sectors including health, education and not-for-profit volunteer management. I specialise in identifying and addressing each sector’s training needs for optimum business performance and sustainability. Having also established and operated successful training facilities in both Australia and New Zealand I am widely recognised and respected for my breadth of knowledge and experience in the education and training fields. 

Establishing Precision Group (Australia) and developing it to be one of the largest Australian providers of educational material in the business field, I was encouraged to share this transmission of knowledge to others who simply want to increase their soft skills and improve themselves and their jobs. I established Business Skills Training for this purpose - to provide the short e-learning courses which you see here on Udemy.

I have written nearly 200 courses relating to all aspects of business – starting at the ground and working up to Board level in incremental steps. Every course includes quizzes or activities and downloadable templates to aid learners to apply and achieve. I look forward to working with you.
