Minutes matter because they record a group’s decisions, including actions, and they are evidence of deadlines and accountability.

GGI Academy offers an introduction to the art of taking good minutes and why minutes are important. A considerable part of this seminar is devoted to listening skills and how to develop them, including some exercises and practice.

Our interactive training approach enables your colleagues to learn about:

  • The art of listening

  • The basics of good minute taking practice

  • Different approaches to minute taking according to the meeting

  • Useful tips and tactics

The course can be extended to offer a critique of participants’ minutes – or this can be offered as a subsequent add-on.

I am extremely proud of the changes we’ve made to our governance processes. We knew we needed to update our approach and reshape the board to embrace different backgrounds and viewpoints – both from inside and outside the game – to help us make good decisions. What we were less clear on was exactly what needed to change and how to change it.

With their broad perspective on governance across many sectors and regions, the GGI team were the perfect partners for this exercise. Their input was invaluable, helping us to find a way through the complicated process of bringing our governance up to date and ensuring we’re in the best possible shape to deliver our central mission of raising standards at all levels and attracting more players and spectators to this wonderful sport.

There is a lack of joining up at a national level. Departments don’t value other parts of the sector
