Rhodia at Work: The Meeting Book

Stephanie


The Rhodia Meeting Book (Recent product of the month at Bureau Direct) is one of our best sellers and one of my own personal favorites. It’s what I use to keep my Rhodia Drive notes organized. (Ideas for blog posts, contest ideas…)

Invented by the president of Papeteries de Clairefontaine for his own use, this notebook is designed to be an all-in-one record of meeting discussions, decisions and action items. Separate sections make it easy to organize and review.

My question to those of you who use it: do you use it for work/business needs, or do you have a more specialized/personal use for it?

We’d love to hear how you are using your meeting book!

  1. I am still considering this notebook (I’m conservative in my habits, and change slowly.)

    That said, my (Québécois) employer adopted ISO 9001 some years ago. Under that standard, every meeting should have a record of decisions made (and why) and action items (with assigned responsibility.)

    This is the perfect tool for ISO 9001 compliance.

  3. I’m a big fan of the A4 Meeting Book for work. I like the page segmentation and I’m particularly keen on noting the actions from the meeting. If there aren’t any, then I figured that whoever called the meeting has just wasted my time. I then look to see if I can get out of the meeting if it’s a regular one and get on with some real work instead.

  5. Colin – I couldn’t agree more about spiral bound books! Except in this once instance. I like the format and personally, I don’t think MY meeting notes are important enough to keep forever. :)

    When the book is used up, I go through and if any of the notes are important enough to keep, I tear them out and put them in the “permanent” file for each client.
