Producing accurate minutes every time 

What is this Minute Taking Skills Training about? 

This Minute taking skills training course is about producing accurate, easy to understand minutes that are vital to an organisation’s decision making process. Without training, minutes may be too scanty or too comprehensive, unclear and disjointed, or fall short of accurately reporting the meeting and the actions to be taken. Participants will get the opportunity to practice note taking, writing and setting out minutes. 

Who is the Minute Taking Skills Training for? 

Our tailored Minute taking skills training is for those who take minutes at meetings and can be adapted for different levels and job functions from those working for senior teams and boards through to project team minute takers. 

How will the organisation benefit?
