    Meeting Management Training Course Reviews:

    "Jack was able to tailor the course to be specific to my role and he had some similar experiences within his career that he was able to refer to which made the training more relevant. He was able to identify my strengths and how I will be able to utilise them over the next 2 or 3 years."


    "Trainer was brilliant and very engaging! Thanks so much! :)"

    -Master Painters Australia


    "Barwon Youth always conduct surveys to capture staff's feedback of each meeting, and PD day. All feedback was positive and an example is 'finally a relevant practical training that suits everyone from HR, IT, Management and all youth/social workers!' We will definitely use PD Training and in particular 'Karen' again for professional development in the areas you offer. We conduct training for all staff every two months, so you will hear from us most definitely."

    "Being a trainer myself, I thought Joe was very engaging. The content reinforced some of what I had been taught as a trainer which can be applied for meetings as well. There was good interaction between Joe and the class. A thoroughly enjoyable course that was relevant. We didn't really look at the manual so can't give an accurate comment on that question but I did manage to take 9 pages of valuable notes."

    -Schindler Lifts


    "The course is very useful in almost all types of settings. The tips, techniques, suggestions are all applicable and I will use it in any type of meeting I run."


    "The course was excellent, Ann was a great Trainer. It was easy to understand and very revelant to my role. I will take away a lot of useful ideas and feel better equipped to run meetings."

    Professor Terry Robbins-Jones, head of the University of Adelaide's School of Accounting and Information Systems says face-to-face meetings are costing Australian businesses a whopping AU$19 billion per year.


    He states "...the time spent in face-to-face meetings - probably accounts for well over half the total costs of any organisation, companies should be thinking about having a budget for it or monitoring how effectively it operates," he added. The University of South Australia study found that 46% of executives felt meetings were a good use of time, while 33% felt that - at best - they were fairly productive.


    These figures suggest that utilising a "meeting auditor" or "collaborative advocate" could produce cost savings and increased productivity benefits.


    Based on these statistics, the Meeting Management Training Course was designed to assist participants with setting the appropriate meeting conventions and protocols to successfully manage formal, informal and e-meetings. Participants will learn to apply tools and techniques in planning, participating in and concluding successful meetings.
