Taking Meeting Minutes

Taking the minutes for a meeting doesn’t have to be demanding, but it is a specialist skill and an important role. The minute taker is responsible for creating the official record of a meeting, impartially and fairly explaining the key points raised and decisions made. These notes will be approved by a meeting’s participants, and may even be used in future to settle legal disputes. And since a meeting is a one-off event, minute takers must discharge their duty right-first-time.


In this course, you’ll discover:
• What minutes are designed to achieve
• The preparation you can put in to make life simpler
• Practical aspects of minute-taking; like equipment and interaction with other participants
• How minutes are structured
• The skills which professional minute takers nurture for success
• The importance of balance, completeness and fairness
• How to tackle conflict in meetings
• How to deal with objections once the minutes are released
