Pitman Shorthand Workshop

Taking Notes

People speak on average 180 words a minute – that's 3 words a second. Can you write 3 words a second? Probably not.

You likely 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. 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.

The most savvy administrative professional knows that each word is important. And learning shorthand is the perfect way to ensure you never miss anything.

Join us Wednesday, May 22, for the Pitman Shorthand Workshop. You'll discover how to improve your efficiency … add to your skills and career development … and avoid the stress of trying to take notes with only longhand techniques.
