People speak on average 180 words a minute — that’s 3 words a second. Can you write 3 words a second? Probably not.
Do you have to take minutes of meetings, jot down telephone messages, write long lists of tasks from your manager, and remember those on-the-fly comments? Can you do it quickly? So many of us take notes and yet have no structure or system for writing them.
In recent years, there has been a myth that shorthand is no longer required for most administrative professionals in this digital world. But as most admins know, shorthand is still a sought-after skill.
In the real world, most administrative professionals know that each word is important. And learning shorthand or speedwriting is the perfect way to ensure you never miss anything.
This new, unique webinar, Pitman Shorthand and BakerWrite Speedwriting: An Introduction, will enable you to find a system that works for you to improve your efficiency… add to your skills and career development… and give you a chance to avoid the stress of trying to take notes with only longhand techniques.
Join us April 15 to learn more about Pitman shorthand and BakerWrite speedwriting from the creator of the BakerWrite method (and former admin), Heather Baker. You will have a unique opportunity to learn the basics of these two systems and find the better one for your needs. You’ll learn:
- The principles of Pitman shorthand
- How to abbreviate consonants
- Positioning to indicate vowels
- Some prefixes and suffixes
- Shortforms for common words and phrases
- The guidelines of BakerWrite speedwriting
- Silent letters and vowels
- Prefixes and suffixes
Don’t wait another minute! If you find minute-taking and note-taking frustrating and find it hard to keep up, this webinar is the one for you. You’ll come away ready to start taking more effective notes, and have an action plan to ensure you can continue to improve.
Anyone, in any role, who takes notes or needs to write more quickly should attend this session.
