Here's what you'll learn

In Meetings that Matter, you'll learn everything you need, to:

Diagnose bad meetings

Wondering why your workshops fall flat? A lot of meetings feel great in the room, but two weeks later, nothing's happened.  Use the Meetings that Matter T-to-T framework to figure our YOUR missing ingredients.

Plan killer sessions

The key to having a great in-room experience is what you do outside of the room. Find out how to get set up for success by having the right people, the right room, and the right conversations planned... before it's too late to change. 

Manage disagreements

But how do you get past differences in opinion and find a shared way forward? The MTM Ideas vs Identities approach shows you how to channel productive disagreement into targeted action. 

Keep people interested

Most meetings, workshops and strategy sessions are boring. Too much Powerpoint, too little punch. MTM will teach you how to keep people active, engaged and participating - in and beyond the workshop.

Most workshops suck - yours don't have to
