Workshop B: Running Public Meetings (One day)

Consultation managers often dread running public meetings. Will anyone come? If they do come, how will they behave? Will a vociferous minority hijack the meeting and heckle the speakers? And what happens if it all goes wrong and makes the situation worse?

Public meetings need not be a nightmare - providing they are properly conceived and carefully chaired or facilitated.

Who this workshop is for:

  • Consultation managers or other officials in the public, private or voluntary sectors entrusted with running public meetings.

This workshop will tell you how to:

  • Set realistic objectives
  • Design the meeting process
  • Brief speakers
  • Manage the use of time
  • Use breakout groups
  • Record contributions
  • Deal with hostile criticism
