“Meetings take minutes but sometimes waste hours” – this session is designed for people who want to improve the effectiveness of their meetings. We will be assessing our own meetings against the Peter Honey diagnostic which identifies 10 areas where meetings go wrong and looking at simple tricks to get our meetings back on track.

Peter Honey suggests that there are 5 key areas for Chairing. This session uses a Peter Honey self-diagnostic tool to help you identify which of the 5 areas you could improve in your own chairing and supports you to put into practice ideas for improvements.
