This three-hour masterclass will give you a grounding in how to get the most from meetings. Whether it’s a one on one with a minister, a reception or a public event, we will go through all the basics of how to prepare for a meeting, how to take part successfully and how to follow up.
Delegates will learn how to approach each meeting doing the right amount of preparation, understand how to behave in meetings to achieve the maximum desired effect, and understand how to build ongoing relationships from meetings.
They will also learn how to formulate an ‘elevator’ pitch and where, how and when to make useful interventions at other people’s events. Finally, delegates will learn how to cope with disagreement in meetings both emotionally and intellectually and how to develop further relationships with those who oppose them. This Masteclass is lead by Emma Burnell, who worked in political communications for think tanks and pressure groups for fifteen years. She is now a freelance journalist and communications consultant.
