The aim
To enable people to organize and chair meetings that are more effective and more motivating for those who attend. About the program
Meetings, bloody meetings is the best-selling video that defines the five disciplines that transform a gathering into a professionally run business meeting.

In a nightmarish court, a cynical manager is found guilty of failing to prepare himself and inform others of what a meeting was about (even omitting to invite all the relevant people); failure to plan the agenda; failure to control the discussion and failure to record the decisions. The judge demonstrates how the rules for running a meeting parallel those of a court and the chaos that would result if he ran his court in the same way.

The nightmare is so vivid that the guilty-as-charged manager resolves to apply the rules - as will your organization's staff when they view this very humorous, sharply observed parable. The benefits
-Suitable for all staff who might be expected to organize and run meetings
-Key learning points are dealt with in clearly-defined segments that can be reviewed and discussed
-The combination of a realistic business meeting and nightmare court makes it easy to understand the problems and the solutions
