My TW involves dialoguing during meetings as strategy is critical for what I do. If I take notes, I cannot dialogue. Minute taking is not engaged by me. If my team is requested to take minutes, I will 1) bring an junior writer; or 2) break the contract. I am not a stenographer.

I've taken a ton of minutes -- in some instances, my willingness to take minutes

for doing a poor job of minute-taking. Corporate USA takes their meetings very
seriously, don'tchaknow.
