1 The Mock Meeting

2 Choose an issue to discuss  You will be put in groups of four  Choose a topic to discuss for minutes.  Eg. Feedback after visiting a Hotel that you are considering for your brochure  Each person needs to choose a significant role in the meeting.  Make it seem real (polite, diplomatic, professional)  But don’t be afraid to use your imagination…

3 What kind of things could you discuss?  This will depend on the kind of meeting you choose.  eg. If 2 people are reporting back after a visit then the other 2 colleagues ask questions and make comments.  Information/suggestions can be provided from all sides.  Need to come to a decision at the end of the meeting (even if this means doing more research to come to a solution).  Consider the next steps, future actions.  What needs to be done after the meeting?

4 Meeting Minutes & Memos  Instructions on writing meeting minutes and memos are in the booklet  Useful skill to have for your internship  I would advise you practising making notes in order to write them up, while other groups do their meetings.  You will not be marked but I would be happy to correct them if you wish.

5 Synthèse (Note) To be handed in Weeks 5 and 8

6 Guidelines  In your booklet there are 2 dossiers:  13 Pages – British dossier (for week 5)  12 Pages – United States dossier (for week 8)  You can find further detailed instructions in the booklet  No more than 5 typed pages  Word processed, neatly typed with your name and student no.

7 The Aim of writing a Note (Synthese)  Making it possible for reader to know everything they need to know without doing any extra research  Needs to include relevant statistics and figures  Need to find a common theme that runs through the articles provided in the dossiers.

8 How to extract this Information…  Most important passages: first + last paragraphs, titles in bold, quotes in bold.  Decide what is most interesting / relevant + worth noting down about them  Decide what it is the main message of the article  Some articles in practice will be more important but never totally ignore any.  Taking notes, noting info, figures, statistics.

9 Structure  Introduction  2 or three parts  Conclusion  Does not need to be the same perfectly transitional structure as an essay.  Clear concise, relevant information, to the point.

10 Things to consider…  Short sentences: concise + to-the-point  Avoid vague phrases or expressions (eg “some things have changed”)  Structure, remain anonymous / neutral (no first person singular / plural)  No personal opinions  Try not to repeat yourself

11 Reminder: Appropriate Language  more and more → increasingly  biggest → largest  like → such as  but → yet  so → therefore  too → as well  if → whether  can’t → cannot
