Both formal and informal meetings are taking place every day in any organization, but who is taking and recording the minutes from these meetings?
Are accurate records of key business decisions being recorded? Who were the key decision makers? Does anyone know what happened in the meeting and what decisions were made and carried? What ideas were discussed and motioned? Are your business units effectively implementing decisions made after the meeting?
The PD Training Minute Taking Training course will enable you to understand the important role of a minute-taker as well as efficiently recording all the important information discussed. Learn key skills like deciding what should be recorded, active listening, how to create drafts and reports, organizational skills and much more.

I’m very impressed by PD Training … they specifically selected one of their specialist facilitators to run the session which then made it possible for us to discuss our requirements further and tailor the course we had selected to suit our particular needs.
I don't usually take the minutes for our staff meetings, but I was surprised how much was relevant and how much I learned about being more helpful and more professional in my job! And the trainer's presentation and personality made the training very enjoyable and easy to participate in. Not boring at all!
Sherlyn D. was a very up-lifting trainer and had a lot of great tips; she was very interesting to listen too! I really enjoyed the class need more trainers like Ms. Dorsey.
Mrs. Sheryln Dorsey was/is an awesome trainer. She kept the class involved and interested. Mrs. Dorsey has such a great and positive personality that keeps the class interested so it was very easy to pay attention and learn (I have a very short attention span). I would love to take another one of her courses.

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.
We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.
Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.
We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.
You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.
A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
We provide the Training Management Centre which is an information hub before, during and after training.
