Effective Minute Taking - Online Video


Every entity will hold meetings of some sort as part of the daily, weekly or monthly routine at which minutes will need to be taken.

But minutes don’t just take themselves! They require an individual to ‘craft them’ as a record of the important points of a discussion and any decisions made related to that discussion.

Properly prepared minutes can provide meaningful protection against potential liabilities, while inadequate minutes increase an organisation’s exposure.

This online learning module will provide you with some highly practical ways to improve your skills in minute taking.
