Taking minutes effectively and efficiently and knowing when and what to record is a real skill to master. If you don’t use shorthand it can be difficult to keep up with and record what is being said.
A minute takers job is extremely important as it captures the essence of the meeting. This includes what has been discussed, by whom, and the outcomes leading from those discussions.
