Let’s talk about your course
It’s easy to underestimate the importance of well-taken notes or minutes. But they’re usually the basis for business-critical documents and communications – and the decisions that go with them.
This means it’s vital that minutes and notes capture key information, and present it succinctly, clearly and accurately. Effective minutes and notes also make it easier and more efficient to create whatever comes next, whether that’s a report, article, email, company update or any other kind of communication.
This practical and interactive meeting-notes writing training will show your team best-practice techniques, including how to prepare for meetings, capture the points that matter and follow up to ensure they have every necessary detail.
You can choose to run this course as a short session focusing purely on effective note- and minute-taking techniques. Or we can run a full-day session that also covers further business-writing skills and how to turn the minutes or notes into high-impact reports, emails or articles. This can also include our unique individual writing analysis.
We can run this course remotely online or in person at your workplace or choice of venue.
By the end of their bespoke training, attendees will know how to:
