I don’t know about you, but I have to say I’m not a great fan of committee meetings… of any kind. Often they deteriorate into weird mix of tangents and mini discussions. And worst of all, very little gets decided!
So I have to say I was highly impressed with The London Chorus committee meeting down in Piccadilly yesterday evening. You would usually think that eleven talented and creative people (plus me) in one room would turn into a bit of a rabble, but they managed to keep everything under control, obviously had strict rules on individual discussions and had a clear set agenda.
It was great to talk about how to help them get more funding and sponsorship and share ideas with some obviously highly intelligent people.
I often dread this kind of group meeting because they can get bogged down in detail and not feel hugely useful. This was totally the opposite and definitely one of the best run meetings I’ve been to.
It prompted me to think – so what does a great meeting look like? Be it a sales meeting, a charity committee meeting or a board meeting. Here’s some ideas I’ve seen work well…
Other things to keep on a tight reign
· Decision making that doesn’t involve the whole group
· Too much “updating” (unless that’s what the meeting is for in which case keep it interesting)
· Distraction due to mobile phones ringing or being on silent
Well done to The London Chorus! It’s great to see organisations getting it right!
