About this Guide

Even in an era of instant digital communication, the age-old town hall can still hold a special value for engaging employees. But they can all too often be an expensive and uninspiring waste of time for everybody involved.

How to achieve the former and avoid the latter is the key issue that must be given laser focus before deciding to hold any town hall. A wise starting point is to follow this advice: if you don't have anything interesting, relevant or of substance to say to your employees, don't have a meeting.

If you can give an honest Yes, then after that thorough preparation is everything. There are very many factors that make up a successful town hall, but this guide takes you through 9 key steps to achieving events that your employees will not want to miss.
