How to Create More Engaged Meetings

May 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Ever sit in a meeting where no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t connect? Worse, maybe you’ve led one where the participants ignored you to scroll Facebook. No matter your role, meetings are likely part of the job description. Client interviews, company presentations, brainstorming sessions and lunch/learns are part of doing business.  Yet few of us love meetings. Why? Because they are often done badly. But what if you knew the strategies that would make them better?

Want to know a secret? The strategies that create engaged audiences also create engagement in meetings.

Join theatre consultant, Craig Janssen, LEED AP and Cathy Hutchison, CPSM of Idibri for a deep dive into creating engagement. In this session, you will learn to control the space for better connection, tailor content to get decisions and add interactive components so that you break the “sage on the stage” paradigm. Whether you are serving as the meeting facilitator or simply helping your team coordinate, this session will help you break the cycle of bad meetings. And you will leave this session with 10 tangible things you can do to make them better. 

This program covers material relevant to SMPS Domains of Practice 4 and 5 and is worth 1 CEU.

Walk-ins are welcome; however, a $5 administration fee will apply at the door.
