Online Minute Writing Skills Training Course
Our one day Minute Writing Skills training course will provide the skills and techniques required to capture and create effective meeting minutes.
All organisations hold meetings and most meetings have minutes. They are used to communicate the points that are discussed in meetings to those that attended and also to re-confirm actions that were agreed during the meeting.
Minutes can also be used to communicate the points raised in the meeting to people who didn’t attend but need to know what went on.
It’s important that minutes are captured effectively and clearly and can be reproduced to communicate this important information to those that need it.

What is a Virtual Training Course you may ask? Rather than have our trainer travel to you to deliver a course, our trainer will join you via our conference system to deliver the course.
It means you can get your team together where ever they are based. You can get the team together in the same room. Or, have individuals join from where they are based.
Our Virtual Training Courses are normally one day in length and we deliver them in all subjects that are available on our site.
Because there is no travel involved, they are very cost-effective and good for the environment too.
We’ve made sure that you don’t lose any of the benefits of having a trainer with you in the room. Our Virtual Training Courses are still interactive, come with training materials and also include exercises, case studies and discussions.
