About the PresentationEffective meetings are all too rare; often meetings are rote and non-engaging, even when critical decisions are being made. How can we ensure we harness the participation of everyone effectively? This session will discuss facilitated meetings and specific techniques, particularly visual ones, you can use to help make meeting more effective. It will delve into why these techniques work and how you can get started right away in employing them.

About the PM Industry Insights
PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.
These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc.
Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
