  • Chairing skills

Chairing skills

A bite-sized classroom session (2 or 3 hours) or a 90-minute webinar

Effective chairing is important because it can provide clear leadership and direction, ensure that debates are focused and balanced, enable decisions to be reached and ensure that resources are used to best effect.

Learning Objectives
Workshop information


This is a popular ‘master class’ programme with elected members. It can also be tailored for managers (particularly those starting to chair meetings of people other than their usual team).


Flexible: a practical workshop (two-three hours) for a group of up to 12 people or a 90-minute webinar. Length of session can depend on time of day (eg, early evening for elected members).
