When Your Meeting is Too Important to Leave to Chance…

A Professional Meeting Facilitator Keeps Your High-Stakes Meetings on Track and Helps You Turn Talk into Action

How many times have you seen a poorly-run meeting derail progress?

Team collaboration is how new ideas are born, big decisions are made, and problems are solved. Effective meetings are the vehicle to get there.

But we’ve all been in meetings where:

  • The meeting agenda got off track and off topic
  • People didn’t contribute ideas or speak up
  • Conflict arose over diverse viewpoints
  • No real decision or action plan was determined

The result? No results. Unless a team agrees to action, a meeting is a waste of time.

When your meeting is simply too important to risk this happening, you need a professional meeting facilitator.

  • Keep things focused, on point, and productive
  • Foster constructive conversation
  • Create an energetic, engaging environment that encourages new ideas
  • Bring diverse groups together and manage conflict

Kristin Arnold Meeting Facilitation Tips

Kristin's Process

There are no one-size-fits-all meeting plans here. Kristin uses a 4-step process to create and facilitate meetings that are customized to your outcomes, company culture, and the players involved.

1. Get Ready

Kristin talks with the meeting sponsor and gets crystal clear on the objectives. She'll help you turn your general ideas into targeted deliverables.

2. Design the Meeting

In designing a meeting, Kristin's goal is to truly "step into the shoes" of the people involved. She goes to great lengths to understand your company’s issues, culture, and unique challenges.

Before the meeting even begins, Kristin solicits the ideas of meeting attendees to discover areas of agreement—and where they don’t agree. She deploys a variety of tools and techniques to gather data, including attendee interviews and Web-based surveys.

The result? A meeting uniquely tailored to your group, that engages participants and gets your goals accomplished.

3. Facilitate the Meeting

Kristin guides the conversation and keep things high-energy and on track. During the meeting, she captures action steps as they arise. At the end, she confirms any agreed-upon action items that need to be done, and who is accountable for them.

4. Follow Up

Your meeting is only as good as the actions that come from it. Kristin ensures there's a structure in place so you can maintain momentum. She'll evaluate the session with you to create next steps.

Kristin is a highly skilled facilitator and speaker. She blends great subject matter knowledge with practicality to help groups achieve their objectives. I recommend Kristin without reservation.
