Event description

Description

Almost everyone hates taking minutes at meetings. There are several reasons.

Some people feel intimidated by the people who attend the meetings while others are terrified that they will miss something. Many people write frantically and then spend hours and sometimes days trying to make sense of their notes.

Lots of people think that it would all be so much easier if they only knew shorthand.

There are a few people who even feign sickness to avoid the whole issue.

It doesn’t have to be like this. There is an easier way.

This is the benchmark program which government and non-government agencies all over Australia have been sending their people to for over 20 years.

It is continually updated to take account of changing techniques, technology and governance requirements. Everyone hates the minute taker's job. This entertaining and practical program is for anyone who has to take minutes. There are techniques and tips you can use to make minute taking much easier.
