I worked as a quality laboratory supervisor in a pharmaceutical company so I usually have meetings with laboratory technicians, section managers, and laboratory equipment suppliers. These are planned monthly or weekly meetings about developing plans and timelines to assure analytical support. But sometimes I also have unplanned meetings about the problems in the laboratory. So I always organize my work time strickly to meet the requirements of my position.

I want to know what should we prepare for a meeting?

Hello Jerome NR,

There are so many different kinds of meetings, I'm afraid it's quite difficult to give any advice without knowing more. You might try searching the internet on this topic to get some ideas.

All the best,

Hello Min Htet Kaung Aung,

There is a technical problem with our audio. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for telling us. We are working on a solution and hopefully the audio will be working soon.

Best wishes,

In the quarentine my meetings are by teams or webex sessions. I have daily meetings with my team to discuss the project backlogs. Some times simple calls are turned into meetings or if happens any problem in the office the emergency meetings are organized.

I usually go to different meetings at work. For example, educatiuonal,tutorial, scientific, methodical etc. I postpone my plans or sometimes take my works with myself to do if there is a cnance during the prolonged meetings.
