What is Minute Writing Skills Training?

We have many members of staff who spend a lot of time in meetings, where a lot of things are said. We need to keep good written notes, ‘minutes’, of those meetings.

The problem is, that not many of our people are well-trained on how to take good minutes of meetings. As a result, we lose a lot of valuable information.

Therefore, for those members of staff who need to take complete, accurate written notes, we want to do some targeted minute writing training.
