A personal note...

"All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which is high, one which sometimes seemed impossible..." Orison Swett Marden

Tired of sitting through ineffective, ill prepared, poorly led and BORING Meetings? Perhaps you find yourself taking the lead on a meeting or conference. Maximize your meetings and personal effectiveness by pre-planning and streamlining agendas.

In these articles we will take the time to discuss what makes a good meeting, what characteristics you need to be an effective meeting planner or chairman. We will touch on some of the basics of good planning and parliamentary procedure. Further we will explore how to set up and conduct productive meetings by pre-planning and asking the right questions.

"Nothing gives a person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances." Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson might have been writing about how to be an effective chairman. With his hand in the drafting and signing of the document that has defined our neighbor to the south he certainly understood what it took to wade through the differences of opinion, style and personal agendas to get the job done. And so will you after this session is completed.

I have drawn from personal and professional experience in attending, participating and leading business, association board meetings and AGM's, as well as conducting, planning and leading conferences and convention planning teams across North America. Additionally, drawing on my platform experience of working with meeting planners on 3 continents as a speaker, facilitator, emcee, panel host and panelist, and as corporate and association trainer and breakout seminar leader.

I share with you some of the fruits of those labors in hopes that I may give you a foundation upon which to see you winning in the boardroom with MAXIMIZED MEETINGS, as a result of yours.
