A few tips for effective note-taking in meetings
Note-taking in meetings requires a range of skills that have to be coordinated: listening, understanding, selecting information and writing. With SCRIBZEE® and a few good tips, you can not only optimise the process but also make it easy to use your notes afterwards. In a word: be even more efficient!
Use the right tool for better note-taking
Organise your note-taking easily using the smart ruled pages in the OXFORD INTERNATIONAL range of notebooks. As a result, you can:
- Write the subject of the meeting and/or the name of the customer in the header at the top of the page.
- Use the left-hand margins to highlight key information, add numbers or use symbols to identify priorities.
- Keep the right-hand page for your notes and the left-hand one to list the actions you or members of the project team need to take.
- Note the date in the special box at the top right of every page so you can find a note easily by flicking through the book.
Noting what’s essential and discarding anything that’s superfluous: that’s the key to successful note-taking. And that means knowing how to listen. If you try to write down everything that’s said during a meeting, you’re bound to miss something important. So it’s better to keep your notes brief but useful!
Share with your teams
With the SCRIBZEE® app connected to your OXFORD notebook, you can scan each of your pages of notes, file them by topic and put them together in a couple of clicks. Above all, you’ll be able to find them at any time, wherever you are, and read them whenever you want!
