Take the Chair

Leading Effective and Efficient Meetings.


Take the Chair is a half day workshop that teaches delegates how to lead focused meetings that deliver results. From drawing up an agenda to managing problem attendees, the sessions helps Chairs prepare for meetings and deal with challenging issues that might arise during them.

The course is highly interactive; delegates will participate in mock meeting scenarios to try out the skills.


By the end of the Take the Chair workshop delegates will know how to:

  • Exercise control
  • Direct discussion in a positive way
  • Enable all members to make their point
  • Ensure speakers don't veer off topic
  • Interpret attendees’ body language
  • Drive the meeting forward
  • Summarise effectively
  • Deal with ‘problem attendees’
