Executives spend on average 23 hours a week in meetings and many would say the return on investment is often poor. Along with this is the exponential cost of meetings to organisations. Meetings are one place where efficiencies through modern practices can make a significant difference to the organisation, meeting participants, meeting outcomes, reducing the costs and elevating meeting performance.
Based on my own vast experience of being involved with meetings and my PhD meeting research I have developed meeting efficiencies practices. These practices elevate meeting performance through focusing on knowledge practices, group memory and learning utilising new meeting facilitation techniques supported by available technologies.
I am the founder and CEO of MQ = Meeting Intelligence – a practical approach to elevating meeting performance. My work sees me being a consultant, facilitator, workplace educator and coach. My meeting research informs my work as a consultant, professional development coach and facilitator. Over the years I have had broad experience in meeting roles from chairperson, vice-president, secretary, project manager, executive and senior management team member.
My own experience leading meeting performance elevation, benefits realisation management, business change and modern workplace learning informs all aspects of my work. I am an experienced professional development coach, professional supervisor and facilitator. My teaching and education services provide experiential learning opportunities focused on professional and personal development. I am also specialised in teaching and supervising organisational psychology students in the Transactional Analysis modality. My Masters degree was in Learning Science and Technology and I have professional memberships in organisational psychology, coaching, professional supervision and training. I bring broad experience from corporate, government and NGO settings.
