Course information

Effective Minute Taking will enable your business units to solve many problems and complaints associated with running meetings.  In the hands of a competent minute taker, the following skills will enable managers and staff to efficiently record and effectively action meeting items.

Both Formal and Informal meetings take place every day in organisations, but who is taking and recording the minutes of these meetings?  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 approved/endorsed? What ideas were discussed and endorsed/approved? Are your business units effectively implementing decisions made after the meeting?

The Redpath Education minute taking course will enable the successful participant to understand the important role of a minute-taker, as well as efficiently record all the relevant information discussed.  Learn key skills, such as deciding what should be recorded, active listening, how to create drafts and reports, organisational skills and much more.
