The Minute-Taker's Workshop

  • Description

    No matter who you are or what you do, whether at work or in the community, you are involved in meetings. Meetings are costly, even if they are held in a company boardroom. To ensure meetings are productive and worth the expense involved, three ingredients are necessary: as assurance of closure, a strong chair or leader and accurate minutes. It has been said that if the minutes of a meeting are not accurate, 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? This workshop will enable participants to understand their role as a minute-taker and the best techniques for producing minutes that include all the essential information.

    This one-day course will help participants:

    • Recognize the importance of minute-taking
    • Develop key minute-taking skills including, listening, critical thinking and organization
    • Remedy many of the complaints that beset minute-takers
    • Efficiently take minutes in any type of meeting
    • Prepare and maintain a minute book
