Managing Meetings Better

Meetings are a simple fact of professional and academic life, as inevitable as Benjamin Franklin’s famous “death and taxes.” But do they have to be dreadfully long and predictably boring? Not at all …! In this course we’ll explore how to make meetings both efficient and effective, wasting no one’s time provided the meeting chair or facilitator does their homework and preparation! This brief course is designed for those leaders who call meetings and are responsible for their facilitation, but it will benefit anyone who has to attend meetings because it will give you some insight and strategies to use with the person responsible for calling and managing the meeting.

The Visualization of Data: Telling a Story With Numbers

The human brain did not evolve to remember numbers, or statistics, or formulas, or data … the human brain evolved to remember stories! In this course we’ll learn how to tell a ‘story’ with our PowerPoint presentations of data, so that our audience leaves our presentations with a memorable ‘narrative’ in their heads of our presentation! Some familiarity with Microsoft’s PowerPoint, while not necessary to benefit from this course, will nonetheless increase the value of the course.
