Make the most of my meetings workshop


I have been asked to deliver a short workshop for staff who work with tenants and residents groups on how they can help these groups to run effective meetings. I really need some tips and interactive activities to spice up an after lunch session on a topic that these particiants would prefer to forget about!

    If your workshop is for the staff you might try “What’s the worst meeting I’ve ever been a part of?” and then deconstruct those moments to describe ways to have prevented the awful experience.
    Better still (if people are up for it), some mini-role-plays/acts (2 minutes max) exaggerating the worst moments can get people laughing, and therefore learning

  2. Meeting
    An excellent idea from the previous comment.

    You may wish to introduce it by starting with the scene from The Office – when the status obsessed deputy takes charge – as a bad example and to get people relaxed and rebuild the rapport after lunch.

    Hi Debbie
    I used the teheme of the Round Table for a workshop on meetings last year, and it worked very well. I fyou would like a copy of the workshop outline, then please let me know – and anyone else that would like it as well.
    Best wishes

  4. Use Resources
    I use a clip from a video/DVD/CD Rom resource called More Bloody Meetings and Going to a Meeting – it is great for after the lunch break as it is lively. To access this resouce Call Jacquie IOL on 01884 821870

  5. Meetings
    I have used the after lunch slot to run a meeting activity and allocated TA roles to individuals…It can be hilarious (when the children get going)but also helps role play and learning. They nearly always recognise the ego states in others too so can look out for them in real meetings
