Meeting Facilitation & Meeting Minutes

by Gilda Bonanno LLC http://www.gildabonanno.com/

Check out this blog post by business writing expert Lynn Gaertner-Johnston of Syntax Training. She explains why a meeting facilitator should not also be the note taker at the meeting - and I agree.

"The meeting facilitator should not be the meeting note-taker. Two big jobs can't be done well at the same time. I watched this strained effort as a meeting attendee awhile back, when a meeting leader insisted on pausing to record notes. She couldn't write and talk at the same time, so we would sit silently while she wrote and then took up her role as facilitator again."
