I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the minute taking course Ana and I did with you. I have to admit that I was dreading the day as I have always hated minute taking and thought the course would be hell and boring too. How wrong I was! Not only did you make the day very rewarding and fun, but I also learnt so much. I have returned  to the office totally fired up and actually looking forward to the next time I have to take minutes, so I can put these new ideas into practice. I never thought I would say that! Thank you again, good luck with the awards
I am still trying to put into practice everything I learnt on the minute taking course and I am sure that I will never stop learning new things but I am pleased to say that my boss definitely noticed a marked improvement after I completed the course so thank you.
Thought I’d share with you comments from my bosses about minutes I took and typed up yesterday:- “Though I would say that the only stuff I had to change is detail that you wouldn’t have been aware of – and that they are easily some of the best Management Meeting minutes that I have seen. Bloody good job” Tash Whitmey, Managing Director" I’m really chuffed!! So, Paul, your training really worked for me. Again THANK YOU!'
Lovely venue, relaxed and enjoyable training session, extremely well delivered. I felt much more confident, and prepared to tackle the toughest of meetings!
Minute writing made simple was a fun, innovative course that made sense and was packed with practical tips and best practice. The trainer has a wealth of knowledge and was well versed in his field. I would definitely recommend this event and would like to go on future events run by this trainer.
