Hire a facilitator for your next business meeting or group meeting.
What is the Benefit?
The benefit to having a facilitator at your meeting means that you have a professional there to ensure people connect, people are engaged and that there is a process to follow for the meeting so that it flows smoothly. Having a facilitator allows you to relax, enjoy the meeting so that you can participate yourself and focus on deliviering the important information that you want to speak about.
Is it still my meeting?
The pressure is off of you when you hire someone to facilitate the meeting for you while you still get all the credit as the host. You will also have a clear mind so that you can make your pitch, give your speech, say your piece or deleiver whatever important information you need to.
You are still in-charge of the meeting: the planning and meeting format are approved by you, prepared and tailored to your personal style.
