Workshop: Effective minutes for successful meetings

On Friday 20 November the Stellenbosch University Language Centre are once again presenting our popular full-day workshop on the writing of effective minutes.

In this workshop you will get an opportunity to sharpen your minute-taking skills in an interactive, practical way. And you will have a chance to get answers to questions you have always wanted to ask about both taking effective minutes and the meeting process in general.

 The presenter is Lorinda Nel, an authority in the field of minute writing. She has been involved in the Language Centre’s minute-writing workshops since 2006. The workshop will be presented in English.

 Registration fee: The SU Skills Fund enables eight SU staff members to attend this workshop free of charge. SU staff members should however apply to attend the workshop via the SUN-e-HR system. In the event that a staff member sponsored by the Skills Fund does not attend the workshop, the complete registration fee will be charged to that member’s environment. The normal cost of attendance is R1 050 (SU staff get a discount of 10%). 

 Information and registration forms: More information and the regular registration form are available on the Language Centre’s web site at
