How to Plan and Lead an Effective In-Person or Virtual Meeting

This On-Demand event was originally presented on April 1, 2020 (60 min)


How is a meeting different than a presentation? How do you engage people and get consensus in a phone meeting? Do we really need to meet anyways? Join us for an informative webinar that will help trainers get up to speed fast.

In this webinar, Natasha Terk, owner of Advanced Communication Designs, Inc. and Write It Well, will lead a lively and interactive webinar that will help attendees gain clarity about a meeting’s purpose and audience, prepare effectively, keep the conversation on track, and follow up without nagging.

Attendees will learn

  • Who is the right audience and what do they need to contribute (a meeting is not a presentation).
  • How to spend the right amount of time to have a successful meeting (pre-read, agenda).
  • How to reach the destination (defining the purpose, getting to an agreement, using the parking lot, corralling runaways).
  • How to get ownership around the next steps and keep follow-up to a minimum (agreements, assignments, reminders).
