I can't imagine learning thing like brainstorming and planning a meeting: thinking about them as things that you can learn only with experience.

I'm wrong: thanks to this course!

I am a lawyer by training. For about three years I was dreaming of developing my knowledge of meetings. In the last two weeks, I spent much time searching the internet for a course that would satisfy my craving in the most convenient way. I thought I should enroll for training in the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria; but just then I found this course on It has been quite great studying here. The course content is, in fact, more than my expectation. I love the the lecture videos, the tasks and the fact that the videos and transcribed notes can be downloaded for subsequently uses.

Really Good content and learning material. However there were few simple mistakes in the exercises that made the right answers to look wrong. And I felt that some of the peer review assignments needed a better description. Thanks

There are many aspects to consider for a successful meeting, such as have a good idea of the type of meeting, the items to head the meeting correctly. What the behavior should be when it comes to formal meetings or informal. Writing minutes, designing agendas, creating a proposal, taking notes, the right attitude in a brainstorming meeting as well as detecting if the meeting is becoming inefficient. The video clips are pretty well designed, the material is very professional and the topics are interesting. As opposed to the first course of the specialization, this course includes speaking exercises, not too much, but speaking is now part of the evaluations.

The course structure was well-organized and easy to follow. The progression of topics was logical, and the quizzes and assignments at the end of each module helped reinforce key takeaways. The instructors' communication skills were top-notch. They spoke with enthusiasm and a genuine desire to help students succeed.

As someone who works full-time, I greatly appreciated the flexibility offered by the course. The on-demand video lessons allowed me to study at my own pace, and lifetime access means I can revisit the content whenever I need a refresher.

Highly recommended! This was a great opportunity to get more familiar with meeting guidelines whether you attend as a leader or participant. The course goes through a real meeting example during different sessions. besides, lecturers try to teach usefull vocabulary and grammar as the main materials for attending a meeting to learners.
