    Why Our Minute And Note-Taking Training Course Is The Perfect Solution For Meetings

    This one day training course is the perfect solution for anyone who needs to take notes at meetings and produce a set of minutes.  It’s really common for people to struggle with notes and minutes if they’ve not had previous training as there are specific techniques and skills that you are unlikely to learn without being trained.



     Absence of these skills may make note taking so much harder and even a stressful experience.



    When it comes to producing the minutes,  lack of knowledge of key techniques and standards can create a poor impression. As minutes are often widely circulated this can reflect negatively on both chair and minute taker.



    Originally pioneered at Pitmans, our contemporary minute and note taking training course can be adapted to support note-taking on ipads and other mobile devices as well as handwritten notes and shorthand.



    It was a highly successful day and all managers are now confident with their skillset for taking notes at meetings.”

    “The feedback from all the courses was great.  Thank you! ”
