Meetings can be a powerful and productive form of communication between human beings. However, the success of a meeting depends on how each of the participants behaves and interacts with each other and the level of information that is created and shared.
In most meetings, the power of human interaction is largely under-utilised and as a result, the participants experience is flat and boring. They are not effectively challenged as intelligent co-creators of the content and are pushed into a passive consumer role.
Essentially, the classical meeting format fails to unleash the power of human interactions and we are on a mission to change this!
Most of the time, we design the entire programme from start to finish. In practice, a full design means we apply the methodology briefly outlined above and produce a script that specifies exactly who in the meeting does what and when (and, of course, why!). It includes indications on how the meeting’s content needs to develop and with the help of which people (such as, but not limited to, speakers) and other tools.
We can also consult you on how to improve an existing programme. You can ask us to look over your shoulder and provide advice on specific parts. On speaker management, for instance.
Meeting Design Weeks global educational events are designed for meeting and event professionals to learn about the building blocks Meeting Designers use when designing meeting programmes.
