Meeting planner

 Develop your note-taking skills

It can be difficult to understand people – especially if they talk too fast, make jokes, or go off the subject. Taking notes will help you focus on the key ideas and points, and help you tune out irrelevant information. Listen for information words, and don't worry too much about writing down grammatical words, such as articles, auxiliary verbs, prepositions, etc.

If you find that you're getting lost in a technical discussion, ask for clarification – or a summary. Use phrases like:

"Could you summarise the main points of this discussion, please?"

"Would you mind summing up what you've just said?"

"So, in a nutshell, what you're saying is….." (and let someone come in and itemise the main points)
