Effective Meetings

Date: 8 Nov, 2021

Location: Online via Zoom

Region: All

Type: Online training

How do we make meetings effective and inclusive? This short and participatory online workshop will consider:

  • why we have meetings and the importance of being clear on expectations/roles etc
  • the different roles that people take in meetings
  • managing and responding to difficult conversations/behaviour
  • practicalities to make meetings as productive as they can be

There will be plenty of opportunity for you to reflect on how this will be useful for the meetings you manage or attend. Places are available for Community Rail Network members only.

Creating surveys with confidence

Date: 23 Nov, 2021

Location: Online via Zoom

Type: Online training

10am – 12.30pm

There are many reasons why community rail organisations might want to undertake surveys from measuring your impact, large scale consultations, or gathering feedback from a small number of project beneficiaries. This short participatory workshop will unpack the theoretical and practical elements of doing a survey – share top tips for writing surveys, maximising responses and how to start analysing data. The workshop trainer will also introduce us to pre-validated questions and how these may be able to help us benchmark the responses we receive.

The workshop will be led by Lizzie Trotter, a head of social impact and wellbeing at State of Life.
