Hi all,

I've read some of the previous threads regarding meeting minutes and found
the information (and the complimentary TechWhirl template) quite useful.
I've been asked to record minutes for a new project one of our VPs has
initiated. Basically, VP wants to sit down for lunch with a handful of
non-management employees to get their opinions about the business. VP wants
me to take note of "important things," which I translate to meeting minutes.

My question to you all is this: do you have any advice for taking and
organizing minutes during an unstructured "meet and greet" type meeting
such as this one. I want to be able to deliver my VP a MEMO or similarly
formal document with action items from this meeting.

I should also mention that this is the first time the VP has asked for my
help with something, and I want to take advantage of the opportunity. The
way I see it, anybody can take minutes, but a tech writer should be able to
take minutes with style ;)
