Always wondered about a minute taking course and how it will help you? At Preferred Training Networks, you will greatly benefit from this training and ace at your next meeting.

ACCURATE MINUTES PROMOTE ACTION

Minutes, also known as protocols are the instant written record of a meeting. They typically describe the events of the meeting, starting with a list of attendees, a statement of the issues considered by the participants, and related responses or decisions for the issues. Accurate minutes can be worth their weight in gold as they provide clarity and a tangible record of an intangible event. Minute taking is still an essential skill and is proven to make meetings more outcomes focused. New York City was transformed by Mayor Rudy Giuliani from detailed minutes of his weekly meetings. If you attended his meetings and hadn’t followed through with the action plans from the previous week, then you’d better have a good reason. That’s an example of the power of minute taking.
