Meetings are now online!
KEYS to run online meetings like magic
The way we do our work has been disrupted and is transforming. In April 2020 a MIT survey found that 51% of the workforce could work remotely. Some organisations are still trapped in the myth of "face-time" culture. They think you need to meet in person in order to read and communicate effectively. It is apparent that online meetings need a unique set of communication skills! Our 'Keys to run online meetings like magic' teaches you both the meeting processes and communication capabilities we've decoded from genius facilitators.

Here's what people are saying about this course
The program provided subtleties that have made a world of difference to the way we conduct online meetings - from the way we deliver to how our messages are received. This program has also helped me in unexpected ways. It was outstanding.
I had many penny drop moments and lots of moments of clarity and since then we've been implementing those in every single one of our meetings. I would suggest this program is worth a look from your end too.
Co-Founder of CoreStrategies
The highlight of the program as a whole is that it is experiential and engaging.
Since attending the course, I have become more confident in leading online meetings. What is more exciting, is that my colleagues who have also participated in the program, are maintaining greater rapport in meetings and ensuring we remain on track. I have even noticed that the meetings are getting shorter yet all outcomes are achieved...Magic!
Chief Commercial Officer of 3DOTDIGITAL
I've got to say that Chris and Geoff are two of their most consciously effective communicators that I've ever met - and I've met a lot. What they don't know about effective communication frankly isn't worth knowing.
I got a great deal out of the program. It's certainly helping me structure how I run online meetings more effectively.
I'd recommend the program to anyone who wants to run more effective online meetings.
This program was insightful and I liked the way it was delivered.
For me, this program is what I really needed to learn as I have to do a lot of meetings during the week with Senior Management or my staff.
After this program, I was able to apply what I had learnt and I was really surprised by the results. I highly recommend this program so you too can run meetings like magic.

We have the capability to discover, from top performers, exactly how they produce their outstanding results using modelling techniques from neuroscience and applied cognitive psychology.
From this work, we've developed a series of models of commercial soft skills. We've also designed a collection of remote micro learning to transfer the capabilities to those who want them.

Why this course may be what you need right now
It is often believed some of the skills required to lead and manage people in meetings, whether in-person or online, are instinctive. They are not. They are learned.
Anyone who has ever had to make a team or an organisation work knows the importance of effective meetings. Yet less than 10% of us have been trained to lead or participate in highly productive meetings.
Research tells us 90% of employees daydream & 73% of employees do other work during meetings. This course provides many practical strategies that ignite attendee engagement
If done well, meetings are vitally important! They help self-directed work teams know what is expected of them, know they're included, trusted and making better decisions that contribute to achieving outcomes
Approximately 33.4% of time spent in meetings is wasted. This equates to 1 day a week. Use our system to win back this time for productive use in your role or business
Why this course gives you skill uptake
Traditional trainers attempt to create behavioural change directly with new behaviour. What results is that graduates can talk about what to do (e.g. answer test questions) but they fail to demonstrate the flexible behavioural competence and capability in real life
This course is built using the principles of Cognitive Load Theory to ensure information is easily learned, retained and applied. We combine this with experiential learning activities (i.e learning by doing) for fast and effective skill acquisition
