Effective Minute Taking Course

Effective Minute Taking - 1-day& Scheduled Course

The troubles associated with effective minute taking often boil down to issues related to communication, listening, co-operation and organisation skills.

This 1-day Effective Minute Taking training course is therefore, designed to help Participants maximise their Minute Taking skills for a range of different environments, including formal meetings, informal encounters and action planning scenarios. The focus will be on building a professional level of Minute Taking skills, which will also require the development of competencies in:

Participants will also develop a deeper understanding of their body language and how it can be used to improve their Minute Taking, as well as their ability to build rapport with both the Chairperson and meeting participants.
