Is there still a place for the skill of minute taking?

With recorders now allowed in court rooms and every Tom, Dick and Harry having a smart phone with a voice recorder, is there still a place for the skill of minute-taking?

The average person speaks at three words a second – imagine being able to take down 100 words a minute and get absolutely everything that is said in a meeting with a client, either face to face or on the phone, then having it readily available whenever needed, without the pain of transcribing from a recording.

Whether it is for client meetings, call conferences, discrete note taking, points of reference, because your recorder battery has died – or to ensure nothing is overlooked – taking notes in a meeting is as critical today as it ever was.

When you are next having an important meeting, whether it’s a disciplinary meeting with an employee, a project update with your key supplier or a financial review with the accountants – why not let Purple Haze take minutes of the meeting, or transcribe your recordings into minuted notes which can act as a permanent record of what was said.

One of our clients, Keeping HR Simple says, “I am really pleased to recommend the services of Purple Haze VA Limited who really helped us out this week with note-taking for a formal meeting being held. Professional and helpful service – can’t ask for more than that!”

Parcel delivery service

One of the most frustrating things we experience, according to a recent survey, is having to wait in for a parcel to be delivered. It’s made worse when the courier company give you no indication of whether the delivery will be made at 9am or 6pm – it’s practically impossible to plan anything that involves setting foot outside your door until that parcel has arrived.

It even affects whether or not you can go for a lie down in the garden or have a shower (what if you miss the doorbell and have to repeat the whole process again tomorrow?!). Or what if you’re on holiday when that all important package is due to arrive?!

Did you know that Purple Haze can arrange to take delivery of your parcels for you and then forward them on at a time that’s suitably convenient!

Just another reason why we’re helping small businesses to keep active and growing in the face of adversity (and courier companies!).
