Minute Taking

Programme aim

This programme aims to introduce by means of a practical and interactive virtual workshop, skills and information which will help participants to produce minutes for meetings. The programme provides tips, techniques, and tools which will support participants to develop confidence in preparation for minute taking.

Learning objectives

At the end of the programme participants will have a knowledge of the responsibilities of a minute taker before, during and after a meeting and will have an opportunity to practice minute taking.

  • identify the key tasks and responsibilities for the minute taker
  • discuss challenges to the role and possible solutions on how to overcome them
  • provide tips and tools to help build confidence in the role
  • tips on what can help reduce stress
