 About the author Heather Baker

For many people taking minutes is one of the most scariest things they are asked to do. Heather overcame her fear and was an extremely successful PA to a managing director of a large TV production company (Granada) for many years. She left to become a trainer and share her knowledge with other people and has now written a book that encompasses all the skills you should need to write minutes. The book has lots of exercises and example minutes to help you really become CONFIDENT AT WRITING MINUTES.

"This is a superb book. I wish it had read it before I started organizing meetings, writing agendas and taking minutes years ago! It is full of really good tips and is very clear and easy to read. This will really help with coaching and mentoring junior members of staff."
