Meaningful meetings: In Practice

A European study estimated that the average staff member spends 16 hours a week in meetings and wastes 13 days every year in unproductive meetings.  Transforming meetings into productive gatherings that drive action increases motivation and promotes success.

Meaningful meetings is part of our ‘in practice’ collection of ready-to-tailor programmes with a strong pragmatic focus. Workshops can be delivered as is, or act as a time and cost-efficient starting point for developing personalised learning for your organisation.
