How to take effective meeting notes

I am attending lots of business meetings etc.... where clients are proposing what to change/fix etc.... what are the best way of taking notes and documenting everything?
I don't want to lose too much time writting everything down, but I must also be careful not to miss something (my memory is kinda bad so unless I write something down i will probably forget it)....

For me I note anything down that I find important and then spend 10/20 minutes after the meeting writing everything I can remember while it’s fresh, often results on a sharable resource.

Not sure if there’s a better way but trying to note everything down during the meeting did not work for me as I could not engage as much as I wanted to and these were not very useful post-meeting.

I would be interested to know what you find!
