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.

The LearnEnglish Tea

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.

After pandemi We was often going to meeting about our works at school but now we working from home. We also hold meeting from zoom.

I have a meeting with my director at the end of the month. I must prepare the document for the meeting . we always discuss the financial situation of the company such as business results, total access, accounts receivable, accounts payable, financial statements. Because I am a general accountant. Then I have to make a financial plan for the next month.
Sometimes when I do not prepare the documents, we could postpone the meeting to the first of the next month

Telling the truth I hate meetings. I think most of them are waste of time. I've visited hundreds of meetings and I would like to say - every other of them could be replaced by emails and phone calls. Honestly, you have to postpone your tasks going to a meeting to listen to someone's problems which you even not interested in. Then you return to your workplace and find another task in addition to those you've laid aside before.
Yeah, I admit, sometimes you need to meet your colleagues face to face to discuss problems which can't be solved by mailing. But not twice a day, anyway.

I don't have meetings because in my country we are still in quarantine
