If you work at the University, chances are you get invited to, or organise, a lot of meetings. A meeting can be an uncomfortable and even embarrassing experience , especially if people ask you difficult or awkward questions. The way to avoid having a bad meeting is to prepare yourself ahead of time.
In this 10-minute talk, Stewart Theobald—an experienced communications skills coach—will teach you a few simple techniques to help you get more out of meetings.
Stewart has been coaching people in communication skills since 1992. In that time, he’s worked with actors, broadcasters, politicians, barristers and hundreds of University lecturers. He currently contributes to our leadership and management training programmes.
