Leading and moderating meetings

Seminar language: German

From Sabine Walter

Meetings take up a very large part of everyday working life. Very few of them are productive and achieve the desired result in the allotted time. This is also due to the fact that they are poorly prepared and inadequately managed.

In this online seminar "Leading and facilitating meetings" we look at three crucial influencing factors: preparation, opening and facilitation.
