Yes. I has.

I have a few tips to share. First, I think that the members in the meeting should have the complete details about the project, and they should be certain about the goals that they want to achieve . Plus, I think its important to have a moderator to divide the work in the team in a way where they do not get lost. And lastly, every member should be cooperative, and they should offer ideas and share there opinions, which could help to improve the project that they are discussing in the meeting .

I feel having a define point of view is important. And the anchor must try to be liberal

Hi,
this is Diego.
I would certainly say Matteo is a great asset not only for the team and the specific project in which he is involved but also for the entire company.
His unique knowledge among other colleagues, is not good for the company. He could get sick and nobody else would be able to accomplish the goal in which he was involved. Moreover, he could also need help in achieving a specific task.
Finally, the company would be in trouble in case he would quit for a new job experience.

I think before general meeting it is important to provide all the attendees with clear agenda and inform about goals and purposes of meeting. Attendees should be provided with proper training and follow up instruction of how to contribute to common goal of meeting. It is vital to ensure that projects assignments are distributed based on expertise of meeting participants. It is coordinator's role to make sure that right persons and right amount of people attending the event.

By the way, is there another workspace where we someone checks and corrects our answers? Secondly, I do not receive any notification when someone comments on my publication. Is there another platform to work?

In my opinion, before setting up any meeting, it is very imperative that these following questions get answered: What is the purpose of the meeting, who should be summoned to attend the meeting, what kind of benefit will the company get by accomplishing that job, and for sure all other characteristics of team spirit, competence, and stamina should be founded among the presenters.

The tips I have for an effective meeting is , we should have a clear details about the meeting , the meeting agenda , the action should be taken in that meeting ,

For effective meeting, it should be well - prepared beforehand and write all details about the topic/project that meeting be planned for.

I listened to this as a possible lesson for my C1 students but found the speaking to be too slow and over pronounced. It is not day to day normal speech, which is what my business students at that level are asking for.
