Meeting Design

To organize, design and facilitate an important meeting can be a daunting task. It is easy for a meeting to go off track, get bogged down in too much detail, be dominated by some"strong" personalities or become a pie in the sky discussion with no results.

The challenge is to plan and design a meeting with clear purposes that fully engages participants, taps the resources of the group and produces meaningful outcomes.

We have helped hundreds of clients design and facilitated thousands of meetings over the last twenty years. They have included university board meetings, presidential retreats, senior management meetings, large groups (100+ people) planning meetings, public forums and corporate conferences.

We work carefully with our clients to produce interesting, engaging and productive meetings. We can also coach people in your organization so that they can facilitate important meetings.
