Sofitel Wellington

Join us this month to hear from Write Ltd Consultant Inez Romanos who'll share with us some tips, trick and secrets to minute writing and note taking.  

Even though we've all done note and minute taking in some shape or form Write Ltd can offer some new techniques, tips for general note taking,  (like when your boss is doing a brain dump in the 2 minutes they have before walking out the door and you need to write it all down!) and some speed reading tips!  We'll have time for some q&a as well.

We look forward to seeing you there!
