LinkedIn Live: Dave Taylor Part 2

Marc:  Why don’t we take a few calls or perhaps if people want to chat prior to getting Dave on the line, we see a few guests? Dave is saying his non-business account seems to be the same. So his homepage hasn’t changed yet.

It’s officially in beta. And if you want to go to the URL for it, it is and that actually will take you to your beta homepage. And as I said for some people it’s already been integrated into their regular homepage, for others it’s not.

You may have to go to the beta and who knows, I mean maybe they are looking at your cookie and if you’ve been at it once, then you will automatically be seeing the beta there. There doesn’t seem to be anyway to toggle it on or off.

In any case that’s what’s going on. We are going to take your calls for the next minute or two if anyone wants to join us, otherwise we will be talking to Mr Dave Taylor of Mr Ask Dave Taylor.

Transcription: Essentials for Minutes of Meeting

Minutes are usually taken at both informal staff meetings and business gatherings or at formal business meetings. Minutes are usually prepared immediately after the meeting. Prior to the next formal meeting, each member should receive a review copy of the minutes of the prior month.

Some Common Checklist of things to do:

  • If you are recording the minutes, make sure you aren’t a major participant in the meeting. You can’t perform both tasks well.
  • Take attendance.
  • Sit as close as possible to the Chairperson
  • Focus on action items, not discussion
  • Avoid inflammatory or personal observations
  • Get the minutes approved. Minutes aren’t finalized until they’ve been approved and submitted by the meeting’s chair or the secretary.
  • To ensure accuracy of the minutes, a voice recording is usually made during the meeting. The recording is later transcribed to the minutes of the meeting. If notes are taken during the meetings, these are used by transcriptionists to ensure accuracy. However, if a voice recording is to made, it is proper to inform participants ahead of the meeting. Read some tips on How to record minutes of meetings

    Preparation prior to the meeting is essential to ensure success. Have available copies of the agenda, pens, meeting packets, maps of the area and anything else that would be helpful to the participants.

    When the meeting begins, try to adhere to the time lines that was set for the meeting. At the conclusion of the meeting, it is always a good practice to summarize the relevant discussion points, findings, conclusions or recommendations. Remind participants of the assignments. This is also a good time to engage them by asking for volunteers in other projects!

    Here is a sample Minutes of Meeting, just plug in the values in items that are italicized:

    Minutes of the Organization Name
    Month Day, Year

    The monthly Board of Directors’ meeting was held at location_of_meeting. The Board of Directors’ meeting was called to order at time_of_meeting by Officer_name.

    Present: Names of participants present at the meeting
    Absent: Names of participants that were absent at the meeting

    From a researcher in the UK:

She highly recommended you and suggested contacting you about the transcription we have for a research project that is investigating the experiences of migrant ******** workers here in the UK.

    From National University of Singapore:

    The transcription work you did was very nice and precise, and the process of  the uploading files are clear and easy as well.  That’s all what we  need so far.
