“The ‘Meetings That Work’ training ticked all the boxes. It was very interesting to hear the theory and useful to have to put it into practice during the many exercises. The proof of that is that I use the templates and ideas from this course on a weekly basis. It improves planning and preparing for one of our 20 meetings (annually). Feedback on the improved meeting format is excellent” – Peter Van Roste, General Manager CENTR
