Who We Are

For over 27 years we have been leaders in facilitating highly effective and engaging meetings. We know how to make your meetings productive and want you to learn how we do it. We have worked with hundreds of organizations in almost every industry and in every case their meetings have improved dramatically.

All of our clients leave our meetings with a renewed respect for meetings. They learn how to access the power in collective decision making and idea generation. They learn the key elements that go into making meetings successful. They learn how to make sure that their goals are met. In short, through our work, our clients improve their meeting effectiveness over 100 percent.


"At one time in our organization you could hear employees constantly stating we had too many meetings. Then we met Bruce Honig with Honig IdeaGuides. Bruce taught us through the (Leading Effective Meetings) workshop, how to make our meetings more productive. By being more productive and structured in our meeting process, we are achieving many more goals on our continuous improvement project lists! The "Leading Effective Meetings" method has become a standard operating procedure for our organization which we will train on a continuous basis. We look forward to a long, healthy, productive working relationship with Honig IdeaGuides."
