Minute Taking Training Courses From Activia
Minute Taking Made Easy
A One-Day Training Course
In order to get the most from this course, delegates should bring along a set of their own minutes to work on.
This intensive one-day training course has been designed to develop an understanding of the role of a minute taker, to recognise the importance of minute taking, and to teach essential techniques for producing minutes that include all the information required, in the most suitable format for the occasion. There is also some discussion of how to overcome some of the problems that arise in the role.
Who Should Attend
Anyone who needs to take notes or minutes at meetings. The variety of people who need minute taking training is extremely wide, though likely candidates include secretaries, PAs and administrative assistants.
