Minute-Taking Training Course

About this event

Both formal and informal meetings are taking place every day in any organisation, but who is taking and recording the minutes from these meetings?

The PD Training Minute Taking Training 3-hour, live online course will enable you to understand the important role of a minute-taker as well as efficiently recording all the important information discussed. Learn key skills like deciding what should be recorded, active listening, how to create drafts and reports, organisational skills and much more.

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? What ideas were discussed and motioned? Are your business units effectively implementing decisions made after the meeting?

This is a practical class that is suitable for all audiences and provides people with the tools that they can apply on-the-job (and in other contexts) the very next day.This is an instructor-led class that you can attend from home or your office.
