United kingdom – 30 June, 2015 – Meetings are hugely important to businesses and are usually where contracts are won and lost and major business decisions are made. It is important to do everything that you can to influence the meeting such that you are successful. Being well prepared is absolutely essential. Despite this, many people go into meetings unprepared.
Tony Steedman from W12 Conferences said that "Effective meetings that produce results begin with careful planning. You need to identify the resources required to plan effectively and the objectives of the meeting. Once established, you can then start thinking about the best approach. It is important to set achievable goals, don’t try and achieve the impossible as it will be a wasted opportunity."
“Many businesses donot pay enough attention to planning. Your plan needs to detail what's going to be discussed during the meeting and it needs to address any potential concerns people may have. Don’t just assume that everything will be straight forward and there won’t be any concerns. Generally speaking, you are meeting to discuss things. If there wasn’t anything to discuss, the deal would already be done. Problem solving and decision-making is critical to success.”
Mr Steedman went on to say that “You want your best communicator at the meeting along with someone to answer the more technical questions.” He summed it up by saying that “Ultimately, a well-planned business meeting will likely be successful.”
