In this 75-minute interactive session, participants jump right into minute-taking by being challenged to take a quick set of notes on a timely and interesting topic. Later in the session, they revisit these notes to see what they have learned.
Participants learn that minute taking is not just about taking notes during a meeting, but also about preparing for the meeting and taking steps after the meeting to make sure the minutes they distribute are professional in every sense. In a lively meeting simulation, participants take minutes and then test the accuracy of these minutes with meeting members.
- Carry out planning steps before the meeting to set yourself up for success
- Provide an accurate, complete and objective record of the meeting by capturing actions, decisions and next steps taken at the meeting
- Ensure that the final version of the notes you distribute to meeting members is professional in all respects
