Making Every Minute Count (Intermediate Level)

Course Overview Dates, venues and booking

Who is it for?
Colleagues who are required to take minutes as part of their role and have some previous experience of servicing a committee.

Session Objectives

Participants will develop their minute-taking abilities and be given the tools to produce clear and accurate sets of minutes.


  • Why are minutes necessary?
  • What should minutes contain?
  • Taking good notes
  • General principles of writing minutes
  • Communicating outcomes
  • Hints and Tips
  • Introduction to the ‘new-style’

Note: If participants already have significant experience of taking minutes and are responsible for servicing a formal University committee the Minute Writing in the Warwick Style session may be more appropriate.
