Reliable and accurate minutes of meetings are necessary to the efficient running of organisations. Minutes exist to provide important records for reference, and should also promote appropriate action and accountability. Good minute-taking is a skill which is often underestimated. It requires attentive listening, the ability to pick out salient points, accurate summarising, and the capacity to write clearly and correctly. This one and a half day workshop will be run experientially, focusing on key aspects of producing good minutes, and will encourage active participation in listening, summarising and writing.
Who should attend this course?
People who are required to take minutes as part of their work and those wishing to develop this important skill.
