Course Summary

So much more than taking notes in meetings.

Recording minutes accurately is an essential element in the running of any successful meeting, providing a history of discussion, recommendations and decisions taken. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for inexperienced staff to be asked to take on this important role and then find the process to be a daunting one. This workshop will help minute takers to better understand their important role and provide the best techniques for producing accurate minutes that includes all the essential information.
