Efficient & Effective Meeting Agenda & Minutes Training

Efficient & Effective Meeting Agenda & Minutes Training

Preparing meeting communications is like preparing the menu for a meal.  For starters we have the agenda which is an appetizer that contains all the main ingredients for the items to be discussed at the meeting.  We then have the main course which is a special recipe that contains the nutrients, that is, the documents that you will require for the meeting and for dessert we get to take the minutes which if you so desire, you can go back for seconds!

This mouth-watering course will help you understand the importance of the meeting agenda and why it is necessary to take the minutes of a meeting.  You will also learn how to take your own minutes.  Don’t waste a second!
