Our effective minute-taking course teaches the fundamentals of writing minutes.
These are the tried and tested skills. These skills do not vary between different types of meetings. The exact way that you apply them might but the fundamental skills that teach won’t change.
For example, an all-day quarterly board meeting will require far more detailed planning than taking minutes for a weekly team meeting. However, in both cases, effective minute taking will require you to plan ahead before the meeting.
Similarly, taking notes and distributing them three days after a quarterly meeting will be entirely appropriate.
However, if the minute taker at a weekly meeting distributes the minutes three days afterwards that is too late.
In both cases, however, writing clear minutes is vital.
