Saving Time When Taking Down Meeting Minutes

Okay, so as it turns out that ‘Minutes of a Meeting’ lesson you did back at school wasn’t such a frivolous part of your first language curriculum after all, since taking down meeting minutes is a chore which isn’t only reserved for those employees working in the admin department. There are times when a manager, mentor or any other form of authoritative figure may call upon you to take the minutes of a meeting, whether out of necessity or if they want you to beef up on your practical knowledge of the industry, in which case you need to know how to do it effectively. There are many different ways in which what seems like a simple task may go pear-shaped, including the inclination to want to write down absolutely everything which was said, trying to make sense of every point put across, getting failed by the technology you use to take down the minutes, and a number of other potential banana skins to navigate. Check out this infographic by GoToMeeting which will give you some valuable tips on how to save time while effectively taking down minutes of a meeting.
