Event Details

Both formal and informal meetings are taking place every day in any organisation, but who is taking and recording the minutes from these meetings?

Are accurate records of key business decisions being recorded? Who were the key decision makers? Does anyone know what happened in the meeting and what decisions were made and carried?  What ideas were discussed and motioned? Are your business units effectively implementing decisions made after the meeting?

The PD Training Minute Taking Training course will enable you to understand the important role of a minute-taker as well as efficiently recording all the important information discussed.  Learn key skills like deciding what should be recorded, active listening, how to create drafts and reports, organisational skills and much more.

This action packed day will include fun mock-meetings and activities run by one of our expert minute-taking trainers and is now available throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.
