    Discussing Ideas at a Meeting

    Chairman: I’d like to open today’s meeting. Robert?
    Robert: First, I’ll quickly go over the main points of the last meeting.

    Chairman: …. (finishes) , if no one has anything to add, let’s move on to today’s agenda.
    Robert: I suggest we each give a little background on the suggestions we discussed last week.

    Chairman: Could you repeat that, please?
    Robert: Let’s start by going over the research you’ve done on the suggestions.

    Chairman: You’ll find most of the information outlined in the summary documents in front of you.
    Robert: These figures are interesting. It’s clear to me that customer communications are not working as they should.

    Chairman: Yes, our marketing efforts really haven’t been effective to date.
    Robert: I suggest we break up into groups and discuss how we can improve our message.

    Chairman: Unfortunately, we’re almost out of time. I suggest you submit your ideas on marketing and we can discuss the best next week.
    Robert: Before we close, could we quickly discuss the Armstrong situation?
