Meeting Minutes

Course Details

Meetings are costly, even if they are held in a company boardroom. To ensure meetings are productive and worth the expense involved, three ingredients are necessary: an assurance of closure, a strong chair or leader, and accurate minutes. If people can't remember or agree on what actually occurred at a meeting, how can the group effectively accomplish its objectives?
