Running a Successful Company Meeting (Part 5)

Company meetingWe’ve cover all the basics of running a successful company meeting and I thought it best to do a quick summary so that nothing is left to chance. Implement these simple steps, and you’re team will be looking forward to the next one. Each subject links back to the original blog.

Part 1. Preparation – Invite attendees well in advance. Have the room ready (chair, mic, podium, etc.).
Part 1. Refreshments – Snacks, drinks, maybe lunch.
Part 2. Breaking the ice – Start with an appropriate story or joke.
Part 2. Starting the Presentation – Keep everyone engaged. Ask questions. Add Audio visuals to keep it interesting.
Part 3. Guest Speaker – Invite a motivator, vendor, client or customer to speaker.
Part 3. Questions – Invite questions before and during the meeting. Repeat them, so there’s no misunderstanding.
Part 4. Goals and Agenda – Have clear realistic objectives and goals for the outcome. Stick to the agenda and timeline.

Great meetingRunning a successful company meeting is fairly easy. If you’re not comfortable speaking in front of a group, it may take a little more practice. But I can assure you, if you’re prepared and follow the simple steps in this series of blogs, you’ll do a great job.
