Programme Overview

This full-day, training is for anyone interested in having more productive, effective and energising meetings. 

Underpinned by the 10 components of the Thinking Environment® conceived by Nancy Kline and outlined in her book, ‘More Time to Think’, the session will give participants the ability to…

  • Set engaging agendas that get participants thinking before they arrive.
  • Facilitate engaging meetings that achieve better results and in less time.
  • Draw on the resourcefulness of meeting attendees.
  • Create an environment for teams to be imaginative in their problem solving.
  • Ensure that high quality thinking goes beyond the meeting itself.

Your trainer, Dr Tim Williams is a GP in Sheffield and Professional Time to Think Life Coach and meetings facilitator.

He has considerable experience in the use of the Thinking Environment™ and is able to offer the Transforming Meetings™ programme to diverse groups of participants.

With the positive response to his facilitation (below), Tim is confident in his ability to share the skills that will enable participants to transform their meetings.


Primary Care colleagues.

The Transforming Meetings course has been universally appreciated by Leadership Fellows, GP Trailblazers, Network Leads and ICBs Teams. If you are in a position to chair, organise or facilitate meetings then you will be able to apply the learning with your very next meeting. The principles will also apply to facilitating energising and thought-filled seminars, training workshops and quality improvement programmes.


Two weeks before the session, you will be provided with pre-reading to support your learning experience.


“I am so glad that I have done this session so early in my career. This has undoubtedly provided me with tools to encourage active, attentive participation and thinking in future meetings I host.”

 “A definite must for anyone unsure of how to make their meetings more productive.”

“Brilliant use of my time and should be cascaded within the organisation.”

“A brilliant session that has revolutionised my thinking about meetings!”

“This is a really excellent training for not just effective meetings but also working with teams in general and getting the most out of your team.”

“I’m thoroughly enthused to put into practice what I have learned today. I will also be suggesting all of my colleagues attend this training.”
