In any professional work environment most people have been involved in meetings at some stage or other. Meetings are held by every organisation throughout the world. Meetings are a key form of communication both external and internal to organisation. Meetings have many purposes such as, to share information, make business decisions, team building, discuss issues to find solutions and to drive aspects of key initiatives within business as usual activities and projects. Hence, organising meetings, preparing documentation for meetings and recording meeting minutes is an important process to help drive tangible results that benefit an organisation.
It is quite a task to organise meetings successfully. Thus, APICON developed a course to cover basics for making meeting arrangements, documentation for meetings and taking meeting minutes.
