Do you attend or lead meetings that fail to achieve meeting or project goals? This day-long Meeting Facilitation workshop will introduce participants to effective meeting preparation, including outreach and engagement strategies, meeting facilitation skills, and how to follow-up for success. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to test their meeting facilitation skills in a supportive, learning environment.

Quotes from past participants:

“Great workshop, I learned so many great interactive activities!”

“This will allow me to think about the dynamics/barriers within a group before making a meeting.”

“My coworkers and I are planning to facilitate a monthly meeting soon, we will definitely consider these techniques!”
