People love to hate meetings, but they are an important part of our work. When it comes to productive meetings, everyone in the room has a job to do, and we need to be clear about the expectations of that job.
On March 12 as part of the ongoing HR Matters series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Bonnie Cain-Wood will present Meeting Madness – Madness Problem Participants.
During this session, Cain-Wood will help you discover the people you need in the room to make your meetings highly engaging and productive. She will also offer tips on how to handle those difficult or disruptive participants who try to throw you off track.
Bonnie Cain-Wood loves sunshine, movies, the color yellow and being a redhead. She serves as Manager of Library Communications at her alma mater, Oklahoma State University, where she earned a B.S. in environmental science and an M.S. in mass communications. Bonnie stumbled upon a career in public relations after a life-changing afternoon washing dirt. She has worked in communications for more than a decade, specializing in education, libraries and the arts. Bonnie became accredited in public relations in 2007. Now, she enjoys mentoring students and sharing her skills and experience with others.
