The office environment is changing. Minute taking is changing. It’s important to update your skills, to ensure you are keeping up with new ways of working. Whilst the basics of minute taking remains the same, these days the wider scope of how meetings are run means that these skills need to be adapted to fit multi-media ways of working.
