The Business Conference: Leadership and Participation.
Zelko, Harold P.
The business conference is the key to successful communication within the business or professional situation. The methods and principles of a successful conference require careful planning. Good leadership is an essential element, although successful leadership styles vary widely. The leader establishes the atmostphere of the meeting, and a successful gathering requires a permissive mood in which the group members feel free to contribute. The responsibility of a participant must also be viewed seriously: the contributions of the participants and the exchange that occurs between them are what makes a conference fruitful. Either formal or informal evaluation after a conference is beneficial. The techniques of the business conference are applicable in many settings. (Chapter 10 includes sample evaluation forms.) (mf)
