Welcome to Meetings that Matter

Most facilitation fails. Traditional workshops are boring, process driven and struggle to get traction outside of the meeting room.

Meetings that Matter is an advanced programme for facilitators, advisors and consultants. Participants learn to lead critical conversations that drive action outside the room.

Stop wasting

The average knowledge worker spends up to 80% of their time in meetings - and most of those are ineffective.

Too many meetings are about sharing information and passing the buck.
