Preparing for Meeting at Various Level

 

It is important to prepare for the meetings at various levels.

Preparation for a meeting is learning to be professional about what one does. Chances do not create orderly behaviour nor produce quality.

While preparing for an event it is necessary that some time is spent in planning. Write down all the requirement and assign duties. Good planners will envisage all the possible things that could happen and all the persons needed and all the needs that will arise at the meeting etc. (even the smallest requirement like paper, pen etc)

Besides, we should understand that a well run meeting is never noticed but a meeting that went wrong will be remembered and criticised. Therefore, it is better to imagine the things that could go wrong and be prepared for all eventualities.

Even writing a report is organising ideas, events and things in an order. Let us take for an example: The Minister of Education is preparing a report. This report will not only be read at the level in which it was reported, but it will be the same report that would go up to the next level. Salient points will be culled and become part of a higher level report. It is possible that the national level report will reflect or will carry the important elements in the neighbourhood level.
