Meetings can often be dominated by powerful personalities that leave quieter-types silent. Yet group science tells us that the best outcomes come from meetings where each participant contributes: regardless of experience, education or seniority. Making interventions in meetings can be a daunting prospect: structuring your thoughts, finding your confidence and knowing how to interrupt are skills anyone can learn. This fun, relaxed and engaging workshop will show you how.

Who should attend?

Anyone who struggles making interventions in meetings. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned professional: if you have ideas to share but find it hard to speak up in meetings, this workshop is for you.

Program Objectives 

1. Finding your presence, confidence and personal brand in the meeting room

2. Taking ownership of your ‘space’ in the meeting

3. Clarifying and structuring your thoughts inside your head first

4. Polite and socially acceptable ways to interrupt discussions and monologues

5. Creating the opening to seamlessly deliver your intervention

6. Step-by-step method to prepare and deliver your intervention so it has impact

7. Group exercises and role-play so you’re learning-by-doing 

8. Hands-on, dynamic and fun with individual attention
