Are you acting as secretary or note taker, or do you need to record meetings? Learn how to take effective minutes and make your task easier. This two-hour online session replaces our previous face-to-face three-hour course and will take you through the process of producing a 'minute'. Cost: £20 per participant


This session is aimed at anyone who takes minutes - in particular, secretaries and their deputies, note takers and clerks to school governors; in fact anyone who needs to record what happens in a meeting.

Other than people, minutes are arguably the second most valuable possession. They are evidence of your organisation's performance and its history. You will learn how to know what to minute and what not to. The end result should be that your minutes will better serve their purpose and your task is much easier.

We will cover:

  • What is a 'minute'?
  • The relationship between minute taker and chairperson
  • How to manage a meeting to your advantage
  • How to take a minute
  • How to make your experience of minute taking easier and better

The session will take place over Zoom, so please make sure you have access to this software before registering for a place.
