Write clear, concise and condensed meeting minutes and still keep your sanity!


If you’re writing your minutes, the main goal of a minute taker is to write in a shortened format so you can keep up!

Use text language

The best way to do this is to use text language eg:

Im sur u wll hv no trbl n rdg ths

So what is texting? It’s either just using vowels or taking the vowels out.

In conjunction, you could also use other shortforms and abbreviations. There is a list of common ones I use in meetings under Free Resources. Feel free to add your own.

What common shortforms do you use that could be added to the list?
