COURSE OVERVIEW

The quality of a firms minute taking is due to come under further scrutiny with the implementation of the new Senior Managers and Certification Regime. They could even be inspected as part of regulatory supervision.

Therefore it is crucial that firms make sure that their board and committee meeting minutes are truly a reflection of the good governance arrangements that the firm has in place.

We know how much focus there is on governance arrangements, a culture of effective challenges and demonstration that strategic decisions are scrutinised by all involved. This is a common message from both regulators.

Good minutes and informed minute takers have a vital role to play, evidencing to anyone who may want to scrutinise your business that you are well governed. We commonly find inconsistencies and lack of practical experience across minute takers, can stand in the way of that evidencing.

Unfortunately many firms have often had little or no time to ensure that those who have been given this responsibility have the tools and knowledge to effectively carry out the role.

Therefore as a training and consultancy firm with a reputation of making a real difference, FSTP have designed a short, thought provoking and behaviour changing workshop for firms looking to improve the quality and consistency of their minute taking.
