Everyone really enjoyed the training course. Jessica (trainer) was great. This wasn't like your normal training, more relaxed and people participated more - would definitely book her again.
Was a very interesting and well-presented course. Gave me good grounding for the topic and a range of things to think about.
Managers spend substantial time planning, attending and running meetings, yet they are too often perceived as unproductive and frustrating experiences.
When meetings are effectively run, people are engaged and can generate collaboration, trust, deliverables, commitment and actions that lead to a desired outcome. They enjoy participating and being a part of a productive team.
This Meeting Management Training Course assists participants with the meeting conventions and protocols for managing formal, informal and e-meetings. Participants learn to apply tools and techniques in planning, participation, and concluding of successful meetings. Course activities include building a positive climate during a meeting, and following the best practices of verbal and nonverbal communication.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.

In your Training Management Centre you have transparency to the action plans so you can see what people are going to do differently.
Our systems and people make it easy to identify how you’ll be able to measure impacts,
and then report on the success in the weeks or months after training.
It’s surprisingly easy to make it so that your system can automatically be up to date with all the training record details you need.
