Focus On ... ... Minute Taking Made Easy


Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, 30 George Square, G2 1EQ


From: Thursday 20 April 2017 09:30 To: Thursday 20 April 2017 12:30

Do your hands cramp up at the thought of recording meeting minutes? Do you question what information you should record and what you should leave out? You’re not alone. Most of us have sat through a meeting madly scribbling what we thought were minutes only to find out later that we’ve missed essential information or that the notes were never used.

Don’t give up, meeting minutes are important. They capture the essential information of a meeting – decisions and assigned actions. They keep attendees on track by reminding them of their role in a project and clearly define what happened in a group session. How many times have your colleagues been confused or in disagreement about what happened in a meeting? With minutes to refer to, everyone is clear.

The role of the minute taker is vital, ensuring that an accurate record of the discussion and decisions made are noted and recorded in the appropriate format.  In addition to developing the understanding of the role of the minute taker and the potential challenges faced, this workshop provides new and inexperienced minute takers with the essential techniques and tips for the production of accurate and timely minutes.
