SURE-Fire Meetings is a lively two-day workshop in which you’ll use the principles of Dialogue Education to actively learn how to transform your meetings into more dynamic, productive experiences for everyone involved. Through this course, you’ll use one of your own upcoming meetings as the basis for designing a truly collaborative and engaging session that will have real and lasting meaning for your participants. In addition to coming away with a strong meeting design you can immediately use, you’ll also leave the workshop with more confidence and valuable skills in meeting facilitation and evaluation.
