Meetings, Bloody Meetings

Making meetings more productive featuring John Cleese

Best Seller

Media Type - DVD

Suitable for anyone who might be expected to organise and run meetings, this best-selling programme defines the five disciplines that transform a gathering into a professionally run business meeting.

In a nightmarish court, a cynical manager is found guilty of failure to prepare himself and inform others of what a meeting was about (even omitting to invite all the relevant people); failure to plan the agenda; failure to control the discussion and failure to record the decisions.

The judge demonstrates how the rules for running a meeting parallel those of a court, and explains the chaos that would result if he ran his court in the same way.

The nightmare is so vivid that the guilty-as-charged manager resolves to apply the rules - as will your organisation's people when they view this very memorable, sharply observed parable. The key learning points are dealt with in clearly-defined segments that can be reviewed and discussed. The humorous content will engage the attention of learners aiding learning.

The key outcomes:

  • Will equip you with necessary skills to organise and chair meetings of any kind
  • Meetings will become productive, efficient and effective
