Making Hybrid Meetings Work – training course

Course Overview

Covid-19 has profoundly changed the way we work and that includes a huge rise in the number of virtual meetings. In a far more complex work landscape employees require support to make hybrid meetings work effectively.

Meetings can be a great way to keep teams engaged, complete group projects, win new business, report on performance, and much more.

While meetings are key it doesn’t mean they’re always a good use of time. Maybe you’ve sat in a meeting and wondered why you received an invite or why the technology wasn’t tested beforehand.  It’s frustrating when you know you’ve got a pile of tasks to complete and nothing to show for your time. Poorly managed meetings not only affect productivity but impact on engagement and wellbeing.

More often than not employees simply haven’t learned how to plan and manage meetings  

In this bite-sized training session, we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities for hybrid meetings. Participants will learn tips and techniques on structure, tools, and engagement from planning through to follow-up.

The result? A shift from hybrid meeting frustration to greater productivity, collaboration, and engagement.

Our clients say 

“…it allowed maximal learning in a short, but intense, session. This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.” – Professor Niamh Moran, Royal College of Surgeons

“I wanted to say a big thank you for the training you ran for us last Friday. The feedback has been universally positive, and it was certainly one of the best training sessions I’ve ever attended.. I think it gave many people some tools to be much more confident in interacting, which was exactly the aim!”
