Am I Ready For This Course?
You don’t need any prior experience to attend this course.
This course is for anyone wanting to learn how to produce clear records of the output of meetings.
If you are not an experienced minute taker it is useful, if possible, for you to have a go at taking some minutes of a meeting or similar before you attend. It will help bring the learning to life for you.
If you have taken minutes before we would ask that you bring them along. These examples can be used as the basis of the examples for the course.
