Meetings take up more and more of our workday, yet participants often consider them a productivity killer. How can you instead ensure your next meeting is an opportunity to collaborate, innovate, and problem-solve? After all, meetings done right are practical tools for engaging stakeholders and building and changing organizational culture. From staff meetings to board meetings, grantee convenings to funder collaboratives, being able to create the right structure for meetings and facilitate them effectively helps you and fellow attendees learn from one another, work toward goals, and make decisions strategically.
Join us for a highly interactive and practical program built on Philanthropy New York’s “The Science of Effective Convenings” and Exponent Philanthropy’s “Facilitation: Tools of the Trade.”
