“Immediate practical applicability, great learning effect both at group level and individually during the feedback rounds, visible progress among the participants. I am very satisfied and would recommend this training to others without hesitation.”
“I am deeply convinced that Unusually Great Meetings does not only lead to better performing teams and organisations, but also contributes to a more positive work experience.”
“No superficial run-down of well-intentioned tips, but a well-thought-out combination of smart interventions with a practical step-by-step plan. There is no excuse anymore, for anyone, to have boring meetings.”
“It was great. Really amazing how you presented the training. There was an abundant stream of positive voices.”
“Rob’s approach breaks completely with the prevailing views on meetings. He has developed a method that allows you to turn every meeting into a success. The introduction of meeting cards is a brilliant move!”
“Rob evokes our hearts and souls and lights the fire in our hibernated mind to discover the truth – the truth that communication is everything for a happier and saner living. His humane approach in his delivery makes him a great motivational speaker.”
“Over the past few weeks, I attended several days of training under Rob’s guidance on how to meet more effectively and efficiently. What a revelation! My employees and I are all extremely motivated to improve the meeting culture within our organisation with the method of Unusually Great Meetings. Highly recommended!”
“We often meet with the best of intentions, but at the end of most meetings, their purpose has not been served. Apparently, the anchor of value creation is turned adrift by waves of routine and elusive interpersonal dynamics. As an anchor, Rob’s vision on meetings is extremely worthwhile in that it helps you to explore solutions together with the participants. In this way, meetings are brought to a higher level and better serve the purpose of our organisations.”
