Virtual minute-taking during Covid-19 and beyond

11 Aug 2020 1:15 PM | ONZL Team

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, organisations around the world have been dealing with how to run productive and effective governance meetings virtually – some for the first time.

However, running and recording a virtual meeting effectively requires certain skills – which are services that ONZL staff specialise in.

Whether in-person or online, ONZL provides confidential, professional minute-taking services for Boards and committees.

Our secretariat staff have many years’ experience working alongside Boards, assisting the Chair and/or Chief Executive with Board meeting management and related governance requirements.

We’re adept at both arranging and participating in virtual meetings using platforms like Zoom, GotoMeeting and Microsoft Teams.

Outsourcing your minute-taking to an experienced organisation like ONZL allows all other meeting participants to fully focus on the discussion, without the distraction of having to take notes or minutes. ONZL provides you with accurate meeting minutes within a few working days, that capture the key points of discussion, decisions made and action points.

You can also be assured that the information shared in your meetings is dealt with confidentially and impartially.

ONZL’s Auckland and Wellington-based teams include staff who specialise in Board Secretary work with substantial experience in:

  • Supporting Board Chairs
  • Understanding meeting dynamics
  • Promptly grasping the key points of a discussion and summarising them succinctly
  • Identifying what’s important to include in the minutes and what is not
  • Dealing with sensitive issues.

As well as attending virtual meetings to capture the meeting minutes, we can also produce minutes from meeting recordings.

If you’d like to know more about our minute-taking service, give us a call.    

Please note that ONZL only offers regular minute-taking services for clients. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer one-off minute taking services.
