2019 Effective Meetings Workshop

Promise & Peril ~ Equipping People to Lead Effective Meetings Workshop

held on May 25th, 2019 at Hampton United Church

An interactive workshop to support leadership in meetings led by Marg Van Herk-Paradis from Credance & Co., Waterloo http://congregations.credenceandco.com/.

When people come together in meetings they bring their unique ideas and perspectives which is a gift, but can also present challenges. When making tough decisions, effective leadership in meetings can strengthen engagement and further the purpose of the organization. Without effective leadership, those challenging conversations can tear the group apart. This workshop is for anyone who would like to improve their skills for leading meetings.

Great workshop!
