Welcome to Brisbane Minute Taking and Stenography

I provide personal and confidential Stenography and minute taking services throughout Queensland and interstate. The difference between myself and others is that my minute taking is extremely accurate and I know the exact and appropriate level of detail to include in the minutes.

I am a freelance stenographer who practices traditional shorthand. I attend various meetings – Boards, AGMs, management, conferences, interviews etc and take notes/minutes/transcripts in shorthand for transcribing. My skill is very traditional and is not taught anymore. My service also offers audio transcription.

BMTS has now engaged the services of a machine stenographer who is available for verbatim transcripts, legal documents, depositions, in-depth transcripts, medical meetings, tribunals, enquiries, conferences, focus groups – transcripts provided in court style unless otherwise requested.

What is Stenography?

Stenography is the old fashion way to record information very quickly and very accurately usually using shorthand. Shorthand is an abbreviated symbolic writing method that increases speed and brevity of writing as compared to a normal method of writing a language. This enables me to record exact discussions, motions and resolutions at meetings and later reproduce accurate transcripts.
