The current challenges facing the NHS today means that time is an increasingly precious commodity and all meetings need to be optimised to meet objectives.
This practical workshop is designed to develop the chairing skills of board members, senior executives and managers who chair the board or committee meetings within NHS trusts and foundation trusts.
During the workshop there will be the opportunity to not only learn from peers but to participate in interactive exercises to explore good practice in the chairing of meetings to help you plan, structure and manage your meetings effectively.
