More effective and successful meetings: How!

Courses & Trainings

We hold both open courses at different levels, as well as tailor-made courses and seminars targeting the day-to-day reality in your organization. In addition, these courses can be stand-alone courses on meeting design, or part of a comprehensive package covering all aspects that make meetings more effective and successful. We offer this latter type of programme in co-operation with cutting-edge partners.

Meeting Design Course, Level 1

“Attending this course has really given me a lot of new angles and inspiration on how to improve my own meetings.”

General Manager Hotel, Sweden

“The training was the perfect mix of theory and practice with quite challenging group exercises in real world scenarios which really had an impact on the way we will approach events in future. With Mike we had a very experienced expert and mind-set changer and learned a lot about maximizing meeting effectiveness by better activating the bodies and souls who are present.” 

Head of Meetings, Germany

“A great course taught by a true expert in the field Eric, who passed on decades of experience in an inspiring two days. A brilliant opportunity to be creative, to meet and learn from other individuals in your field from across the globe too. ”
