Minute Taking (Half or Full Day)

Minutes act as a public record of what was discussed and agreed at a meeting.  The skill of taking and drafting well-constructed minutes is vastly under-rated.  All too often, the person taking minutes has been given no instruction or guidance on how to layout the minutes or articulate and summarise threads of conversation.  This often results in poor quality minutes.

This course will provide the delegates will clear advice on layout and appropriate writing styles thereby raising confidence levels and the skill level of the minute taker to complete this most important task to an exceptionally high standard.

Who should attend?

Anyone asked to take minutes of meetings.
