Product Description

Amazon Review

Many of us are involved in meetings of one sort or another. At work, as volunteers in local organisations, in less formal social and semi-social settings, and at larger public meetings where our views could sway far-reaching decisions. Managing Meetings is primarily aimed at businesses, but its guidelines and help will be of use in other situations too.

There is good advice on how to prepare for a meeting, covering topics like setting the agenda, organising the location and seating arrangements. A very informative chapter aimed specifically at people chairing meetings offers advice on areas like keeping order, setting and managing the pace, and using formal procedures; while attendees will benefit from general guidelines on taking an active role and listening to others. Oh, and bearing in mind how many unnecessary meetings we seem to attend, it is good to see a special section devoted to deciding if you need a meeting at all. --Sandra Vogel

A Good Primer 1 Dec. 1999
By Thomas Cook - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is fairly basic, and its layout of short chapters, lots of headings, photos, lists, and tables make it a quick and easy book for browsing. This is a good book for those with little experience, or confidence, in handling or attending meetings. It also serves as a quick refresher, because of its format. You will not find anything profound or innovative, and some of it is a little too simplistic or irrelevant. At times it seems a little exploitive in its approach to human relations; it is not long on how to overcome differences or conflicts. Still, I recommended it in the leadership development course which I teach.

Dealing Tactics 8 Dec. 2003
By Ilaxi S. Patel - Published on
Format: Paperback
Always so fond of 'Weekly Kids & Parental Meets', what I ever thought after attending meetings in person or groups elsewhere is, that most of the chairpersons and leaders lag somewhere when it came to 'Effective Managing Meetings' for Constructive results. I make a point to gift this book of Tim Hindle to the chiefs with a purpose to enhance their potentialities with better Managing Committees or groups. Most of the places, a meeting begins with a 'Cause', meet, dine and be merry to end up with time running short. This Book is a 'Perfect Gift' as it has detailed power tips to hand real life situations and develop first-class meeting skills to improve efficiency and decisiveness. Right from Defining Meetings whether Formal or Informal, knowing aims, selecting attendees, preparing agenda, site,passing the message, handling problems, checking those pitfalls and lot more reflects how to deal with situations. The book has small tabled 'Things to do' and analysis, charts too handy. I recommend this book for every newbie and existing top persons whether in Business or conducting Groups, Ladies wings, etc. A must read.
