Robyn Bennett  Dip Mgnt

Minute Taking Course Specialist

Often referred to as the Minute Taking Queen, your minute taking courses are led by Robyn Bennett who has a wealth of experience in minute taking.  This experience has been gained from a number of years working as an executive assistant taking minutes at the senior management level of organisations.  Robyn also ran a secretarial business for five years that predominantly focused on contract minute taking.  This involved taking minutes at over 10 meetings a month and anywhere from a one-hour informal meeting to a three-day formal Board meeting.

Catering to all levels
The Minute Taking courses are catered for all levels from beginners-intermediate to advanced.

Experience and expertise
Over the past ten years, Robyn has led in excess of 500 plus minute taking courses for 1,000 participants.  She has developed systems and processes around the best way to write minutes and is passionate about sharing these with others who strive to be excellent minute takers.
Public courses have been held for Victoria University, The University of Auckland, CPIT and Otago Southland Employers’ Association.

Training style
Courses are interactive and fun so that participants will enjoy the process of learning while increasing their skills and knowledge.
