Shorthand and Speedwriting Best Practices

Save time, become more efficient, and enhance your career with these shorthand and speedwriting tips. Many administrative assistants, executive assistants, office administrators, secretaries, office managers and other administrative professionals are required to take notes and record information accurately, efficiently and easily. This cannot always be done through technology. In fact, the most efficient method to record the spoken word is still to use shorthand or speedwriting. This content is designed for people who already have an understanding of shorthand or speedwriting, and want to improve their ability and confidence to use their shorthand/speedwriting at work. This topic also explains the methods to increase writing speed when using shorthand or speedwriting, developing good habits for success and how to support your boss or organisation by demonstrating the need for shorthand or speedwriting. The material is also valuable for those who are wanting to get back into using their shorthand or speedwriting, and even for those with little knowledge of a shorthand or speedwriting system, as it contains helpful hints and guidance as to how a shorthand or speedwriting system works and the methodology around its use. We'll also see how shorthand and speedwriting, far from being extinct, is still a vital office skill and a much sought-after skill to support organisations with speedy communications and the accurate relaying of information both internally and externally.
