    Minutes are important records, but writing them often feels laborious and thankless. Wouldn't it be great to finish them by the time a meeting ends? If you can type, we can show you how. Revolutionise this task by leveraging every stage of the meeting process to your advantage. 


    • Understand the purpose of minutes and deepen your knowledge of why they’re so important.
    • Become confident in your role at every stage of the meeting process—know what to do before, during, and after a meeting.
    • Find out how to help your chair make meetings as efficient and action-oriented as possible.
    • Learn how to write plain English, technically accurate minutes that work for all intended readers, whether they’re reading tomorrow or 10 years from now.
    • Learn the language of meetings so you can approach even the most formal of meetings with confidence.


    ‘Write truly are the plain English experts. Their courses are always interesting and valuable. The skills that one receives are not only valuable for your organisation, but for the attendee. They can become 'life skills'. Highly recommended.’
    Theresa Khatchian, Ministry of Justice
