Minute Taking

Just about everyone avoids taking minutes. This is hardly surprising when you think how little training minute takers usually receive – and how much they actually need to know.

This guide tells you everything that’s important so that when you’re next asked to take the minutes you’ll be able to say yes with confidence.

The Cabinet’s done and they’ve all gone to dinner
The Secretary stays getting thinner and thinner
Racking his brains to record and report
What he thinks that they think they ought to have thought.

Sir Humphrey Appleby, Yes Minister
