Many people find minute taking difficult. The aim of this one-day course is to give you the skills to take minutes confidently and accurately.
Your tutor will provide you with clear guidelines for every aspect of minute taking: preparing for the meeting, working with the chair, writing the agenda, developing listening skills, summarising and distilling key points, and writing up the minutes.
This is a very practical course, with plenty of opportunities for questions, discussion and exercises. Examples of good and bad minutes will help you to follow best practice and avoid common mistakes.
After the course you will be entitled to a year of free support from your tutor, to help you as you put the techniques into practice.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
Before the meeting
Working with the chair
Preparing the agenda

Writing up the minutes
Using professional language
Overcoming the passive voice

Running the Minute Taking course in-house
The Minute Taking course can be run as in-house training anywhere in the world. If you have a group of staff who need the same skills, this option is convenient and cost-effective. It is powerful too, because we can provide a course that is specifically designed to achieve your objectives.
Tailored to your needs
The standard programme is available as in-house training, but you may prefer us to tailor it to match the needs of your staff and your organisation. Tailoring can include:
An in-house course is fully flexible. Tell us what you want to achieve and we will work with you to design a course to match. Tell us when you would like to run the course and we will find a date that suits you.
Every course we run comes with a year of free support for each participant. We recognise that people do not think of every question on the day of the training. Our support service gives them the opportunity to ask their tutor an unlimited number of questions in the year following the course. In this way they continue to build their skills and confidence.
