Meeting Minutes – taking effective minutes

Minute Taking Skills Workshop

Taking effective meeting minutes is a skill that can be difficult to get right. Generally, most people who take meeting minutes end up with too much detail of what was said and not enough detail of what was decided and the actions going forward. Well written minutes can transform the effectiveness of meeting outcomes and can transform team performance.

This Minute Taking Skills workshop is class-based and takes place over one day. You will learn how to confidently take and write professional meeting minutes. This is an interactive workshop with practical exercises throughout the day to help you capture the essential information accurately.
