How To Run Better Business Meetings


2-Day Workshop

Meeting is business. The business meeting today is management’s most useful tool for getting its job done. Now, more than ever, the meeting has become the place where data are sorted, analyzed, regrouped and distributed. As the speed of information dissemination has increased, the ability to handle it has become more vital. There is little point in speeding up the flow of information if the result is an unmanageable glut. So the need for efficient meetings is greater today – and likely to increase in the dynamic competitive environment of business.
