There are good meetings and there are bad meetings. Bad meetings seem like they're never going to end and you leave wondering why you were even present. Effective ones leave you energized and feeling that you've really accomplished something. Effective meetings need structure and order. Without these elements they can go on forever and not accomplish a thing. This one-day workshop aims to take the pain out of meetings and introduce staff to the principles and techniques involved. The workshop is highly participative and will focus on providing an opportunity for participants to practise the skills needed to chair/or contribute effectively to meetings.

DCM can develop customised solutions or deliver off-the-shelf courses in-house for your staff. This approach makes perfect sense for groups of 4+ delegates, enhancing cost effectiveness as well as team bonding.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
