Minute Taking Made Simple

The workshop focuses on meeting preparation, meeting procedure and practical exercises that will aid you when writing minutes.

Classroom exercises will enable delegates to practice their new skills in listening, note taking, summarising and selecting the most important points when writing and compiling minutes. These exercises are designed to be practical and offer an ideal opportunity for individual coaching. We encourage you to bring a sample of minutes you have produced, to review and refer to at the training.
