Global Meetings

Deciding whether, and how, to organize a global meeting

Meetings are important means for any organization’s staff and partners to stay connected, exchange ideas, learn, and generate solutions to advance the organization’s work. The norm should be that they are well planned, make good use of staff time and expertise, are efficient and conducted well. This guide aims to help better coordinate and rationalize global meetings.

The definition of a global meeting for the purposes of this guide is: A special, periodic or large face-to-face meeting that involves staff from multiple offices and requires travel by at least some participants. Examples may include workshops, network meetings, functional meetings, consultations, meetings involving external parties, and other face-to-face meetings involving staff from multiple offices.
