Minute Taking Made Easy 11 February295.00

Do you need to ensure that your minutes are clear, concise and accurately reflect the decisions taken and actions agreed at a meeting? Would you like to be confident that the notes taken and the minutes created will produce a valuable record of a meeting?

In this workshop, attendees will learn about best practice standards, how to listen more effectively and write less during a meeting, and how to ensure completed minutes achieve their objectives.

 

Learning Outcomes


Once the workshop has finished, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the role and responsibilities of the minute-taker;
  • Create minutes that are a clear, concise, accurate record of important points;
  • Listen more effectively and take shorter notes; and
  • Use simple techniques to write clearly and concisely.

 

Intended Audience


This workshop will benefit anyone who regularly attends team, inter-departmental or annual general meetings, and is tasked with taking comprehensive minutes. As meetings are part-and-parcel of workplace life, anyone who would like to improve their skills in documenting those meetings will also see rewards.
