Run My Meeting

“I call Steph when I want people to go away thinking that they were glad they were there – because they’ve clarified their thinking and had a genuine, productive conversation.”

Phil Beardmore, Low Carbon Buildings Expert and Environmental Leadership Coach

Important meeting with a challenging, large or multi-stakeholder group?

Do you want to:

  • focus on managing the work, not managing personalities?
  • focus on the content, not managing time?
  • help different characters or functions work together effectively?
  • make sure every voice is heard and no-one dominates?
  • welcome people with Lived Experience and do genuine co-production?
  • use technology with confidence?

Are you sick of thinking ‘another bloody meeting’?

I love being able to help people get what they really need from meetings. This is possible when everyone in the room gets a chance to share their knowledge, and all the skills and resources in the room come together to solve an issue or get something done in a way that hasn’t been imagined before.

“Your combination of approach and style was perfect both for the subject matter and some of the challenges we were looking to overcome.  It was appreciated by all – one text I received from a Board member starts: “It is hard to overstate the very positive step forward we took today.”

Tim Hollingsworth OBE, CEO Sport England

I make my approach and tools clear as I go along, and participants put them into practice, once before I’d even left the meeting.

Case Studies

Are you:

  • a board member or chair with a challenge
  • a governing body writing a new strategy
  • a national organisation resolving a management/delivery divide
  • a charity refreshing its core purpose
  • a cross-service board member working together to enhance wellbeing in a major city
  • a member or leader of a council adapting service models to strengths-based working

Then you’ll have something in common with clients I’ve already worked with to make their meetings matter.
