Essential skills for making meetings work.

Good minute-takers are worth their weight in gold. Minute-takers can do more than record the outcomes of meetings concisely; they can also help the chairperson run the meeting more effectively.


This programme is for you if you are, or plan to be, responsible for recording minutes of meetings and noting important action points as part of your role.  You will be brought up to date with the latest thinking on meeting records and all the practical skills of minute-taking. A key message is that minute taking can only be effective as part of the wider process of meeting administration. Minutes should be brief, but how should they look? Examples in a range of formats will be used, and participants can take away ideas for improving the quality of their own work.


On completion of this course delegates will be able to:
