Event Details

Both formal and informal meetings are taking place every day in any organisation in New Zealand.

Are accurate records of key business decisions being recorded? Who were the key decision makers? Does anyone know what happened in the meeting and what decisions were made and carried and ideas discussed and motioned? Are your business units effectively implementing decisions made after the meetings are concluded?

The PD Training Minute Taking Training course will enable you to understand the important role of a minute-taker as well as efficiently recording all the important information discussed in a manner which makes reporting and follow-up fast and easy.

This action packed day will include fun, mock-meetings and activities run by one of our expert minute-taking trainers and is now available throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Christchurch or Wellington.
