YPE Presents: Making Meetings Awesome with Gord Sheppard

Event Details

Stop wasting time and money in meetings! The ‘How To Create Awesome Meetings Workshop’ will help you and your team get the tools and inspiration to make your next meeting productive and profitable.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to:

  1. Calculate the actual cost of a meeting so that you don’t waste a single second
  2. Become an effective facilitator who delivers outstanding AGENDAs and follows up FAST
  3. Connect each meeting directly to your organization strategy
  4. Fight so you can really get along
  5. Get inspired so you can take action and more!

This workshop is taught by Gord Sheppard who has run or participated in more than 2000 meetings! This experience (occasionally exciting, often painful) made him realize that life is short and we can't afford to waste time in meetings. With that inspiration Gord is now dedicated to changing the world, one meeting at time.
