Leadership Speakers for Meetings
Need a dynamic speaker for your next meeting?
When getting ready to plan a meeting, a question normally asked by the planner is: What will we be accomplishing during this time together? Are we reporting information? Is there a problem to be solved? Are we brainstorming around a topic? Or a training session on a new product or service. Our speakers can help you create content and activities for your meeting which can be standard to the subject or completely customized for your meeting or group.
Meetings generally fall into four categories:
1. Reports and Information – This type of meeting demands quite a bit of preparation. There is normally many reports, lots of numbers and the inability it stay focused for long periods of time. You need to make sure there are breakouts and the ability to ask questions and gather input. Pare down presentations to discuss points most important to the group. Our speakers can help you by creating an overview and audience preparation for what will be discussed. They can discuss expectations upfront along with outcomes and facilitation.
2. Decision Making and Problem Solving – This type of meeting allows for individuals in management positions to set expectations for the group or organization. This allows different departments to speak about where they fall in the decision-making process. Keeping to the agenda is important as this can be tied to the outcome for the group. We can set the stage as a keynote speaker or finish the meeting with an overall reflection on the messages discussed during the event.
3. Creative and Brainstorming – This is an easily addressed type of meeting but you must keep to the task at hand. These types of meetings can bring great ideas to the table, but they can also be sidetracked. Make sure you have ideas and outcomes clearly defined. We can help you set the stage with ice breakers and expectations as well as facilitation and keeping groups focused. We can also allow for all ideas and suggestions to be validated and work towards openness with the group. An objective speaker.
4. Training and Skill Building – Sometimes meetings are opportunities to get certain groups within an organization together for discussions, problem solving and training. We can help you train your teams with sales strategies, customer service, leadership, motivational training and conflict resolution. Our speaker, Michael Miller, is a certified Ture Colors Awareness Facilitator. We can work with your group on personality traits and how they can help with communication and overall productivity.
