Make Meetings Matter – what our students said about the course

“I feel that starting a new mental health forum  it might be helpful to do this course to teach newcomers the basics of meetings”

“I came to this course to increase my knowledge of running meetings- I felt I was enabled to learn in an active and very enjoyable way. It has greatly improved my confidence and I would recommend it to my peers”.

“The course enabled me to have a deeper understanding of how meetings can be progressed whereby individuals are valued and respected”.

“The course was very informative, information was presented in a clear manner by facilitators, no stress or pressure to take part in discussions. I would recommend Make Meetings Matter to anyone who needs to know the nuts and bolts of meetings- how they work and how to get the most from any meeting”.
