Collective impact involves A LOT of meetings. These meetings are often critical for building relationships, sustaining momentum, and maintaining accountability between partners. Many meetings, however, meander, lack focus, and can suck the air out of our initiatives.

In this online training, Paul Schmitz, senior advisor to the Collective Impact Forum and CEO of Leading Inside Out, will share tools and strategies to help you design meetings that energize and reach your goals, rather than waste your time (and patience.)

This online training will explore design factors like how to:

  • Clarify roles and expectations between attendees
  • Design your space to be engaging and accessible
  • Keep your goals and purpose at the center
  • Focus agenda on engagement, not reports and stick to schedule
  • Maintain commitments and accountability among partners
  • Learn to organize meetings that matter and that people won't want to miss.

Making Meetings Work: How to design meetings to energize rather than bore

Date: Tuesday, September 26
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm ET
Cost: $60

Good afternoon

I just registered for this.  I think i created a new account though....

I haven't gotten a confirmation email so wondering if you can confirm that I'm registered (although it will be my staff person participating). 

Thanks

Melina

Hi, Melina! We checked the system with the training provider Blue Sky, and you are all set. As a heads-up, your staff member will have to use the Blue Sky login account/info that you used to register this training on the day of the event. All they need to do is login with that info, go to the event page, and click on the "join" button.

No worries, Melina. To register for this training, just click on the "register now" link in the text above, or visit the registration page here: https://www.pathlms.com/fsg/webinars/2427#

There is a "add to cart" button, where you would add the training to your shopping cart. You'll be prompted to sign-in or register with the site then. After you complete the registration and purchasing process, you'll be all set for the training, and then you or your staff member would just login with the Blue Sky login info on the day of the training to join.

Let me know know if you have any questions or need any assistance during this process.

One added note: Checking our system, you are all set with your registration--you don't need to register again. But on the day of the event, just visit this page. You or your staff member may need to login to the Blue Sky platform. Just use the same login information you used to register today for the training, and you'll be all set.
