Great chairs make great meetings. They serve the meeting and all of the participants to create the most effective organisations. Contributers are heard, ideas are brought together to create value, decisions are made and actions defined clearly. Effective meetings are a joy to attend.

This Masterclass will refine your skills as a chair, and provide more strings to your bow to effect change and action. It will take your chairing to the next level. The tutor will bring new ideas and stimulations to get you thinking. You will also work together to carve out your individual path to progress. 

The tutor will take you through his framework to make your chairing a rewarding, productive and enjoyable experience for you and the group you’re working with. You’ll leave with what you need to enable your group to work together and move forward to greatest effect.
