notetaking & minutes

Welcome to Take Note’s LIVE notetaking divison. Home of the elite.
Our notetakers are knowledgeable, professional, discreet and SUPER FAST at typing. On arriving at Destination X (20 minutes early), readied with their own equipment, they’ll type detailed transcripts of what is being discussed as it happens. First drafts will be available immediately, with an edited and proofread version with you first thing the following morning.

I just had a look through the notes and have to say that I am very impressed. They are more comprehensive than I could have imagined and I am indebted to Dan for making my job so much easier. It looks like I will not have to go back to recordings at all, which is great. Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with and I appriciate him putting up with our gruelling schedule. Thank you for getting the notes to me quickly.
