Make minute taking a complete breeze. Using a few simple yet brilliantly effective techniques, you can be in total control, get to the heart of the meeting and have the confidence to know that you’ve got everything covered. A minute taker has a key role in ensuring meetings are productive. You want to be confident and competent in this role. Throughout the day, the trainer will take you through a step-by-step approach to producing effective minutes – giving templates to help you produce structured agendas and take notes effectively. Practical exercises will help you build confidence and put ideas into practice.

DCM can develop customised solutions or deliver off-the-shelf courses in-house for your team. This approach makes perfect sense for groups of 4+ delegates, enhancing cost effectiveness as well as team bonding.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
