Taking minutes involves more than simply writing notes. With schools likely to continue making difficult and unprecedented decisions that could have long-term implications, it is essential that meeting minutes support efficient decision-making processes.
Being able to keep up, take concise notes, and cascade the relevant action points to the right people are all critical skills that minute takers must master now more than ever.
Attend our Advanced Minute Taking course led by Communications Expert, Sue Calthorpe, to maximise your listening and writing capabilities and gain invaluable practice and feedback. Gain the confidence to create great meeting notes and turn them into insightful and actionable meeting minutes.
Through a series of tutor-led sessions and interactive exercises aimed at international private schools (wherever you are located), leave the day confident in your abilities as a minute taker.
