NewHow To Get Your Voice Heard In Meetings

Even before we moved our work online, lots of people found it hard to get their voice heard in meetings.  It can often feel as though the same people dominate meetings, and that it is hard to get your point across.  Also, some people don’t do their best work when they are thinking on the spot, so they get scared that they will be asked questions that they can’t answer in the moment.

How To Get Your Voice Heard In Meetings is an online course within our Professional Development Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
