Course description

A Masterclass in Minute Taking

This is a virtual course tailored to your organisation. We can host up to 16 people on the virtual course and this will take place via Zoom or MS Teams.

No matter who you are or what you do, whether at work or in the community, you are likely involved in meetings. Meetings are costly, whether they are held in a company boardroom or at the local coffee shop. To ensure that meetings are productive and worth the expense involved, three ingredients are necessary: an assurance of closure, a strong chair or leader, and accurate minutes.

It has been said that if accurate minutes have not been recorded, then the meeting may just as well not have taken place. If people can’t remember or agree on what actually occurred at a meeting, how can the group effectively accomplish its objectives? After this online learning course you will understand your role as a minute-taker and the best techniques for producing minutes that include all the essential information needed.
