Conduct effective meetings. Use LEADERSHIP
Look after your audience’s comfort. The room – refreshments – visual aids must all be in good order
Explore the needs of your audience. Ask what they expect and need from the meeting
Arrive early – Turn up at least ten minutes and welcome others
Decide to start meeting on time. Respect those who came in early
Explain the purpose of the meeting and ask there are any other points
Read your papers in advance. This clears your thinking and creates a sense of good leadership
Stick to your time schedule as far as possible
Handle emotions and hidden agendas and address conflict as it arises.
Involve everybody. Ask people what they think has been decided
Prepare your audience for action by checking with them. You cannot do this af the audience is too large.
