How to 'carry' a meeting?

    Hi, I have some important meetings over next day or so.

    What questions should I ask or not ask?

    What should I state or not state?

    Ask them how many there were originally. Ask if there are conditions or parameters that would limit the range in the fourth iteration.

    Don't ask if he remembers your application. Definitely don't ask about the potential for upscaling without giving adequate context.

    Give them as much granular detail as you can on the proposed methods for your transliteration schemes. Don't bore them by droning on about your rationale the way you usually do in this sort of meeting.

    Here's a genuinely useful piece of advice:

    If you want an answer that makes sense you need to ask a question that makes sense.

    What is a tracker mortgage?

    What's the best way to hang toilet paper?

    It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

    The best way to win everyone over in relation to this important meeting is for you to cancel it.

    Why am I here?

    What day is it?

    Who are you again?

    Not your ornery onager

    OP, there are a lot of posters taking the proverbial, which is not very nice. Your question should be taken at face value, given the forum.

    In order to carry a meeting well, and not injure yourself, you need to bend your knees, keep your back straight, and hold the meeting close to your body.

    Alternatively use a pallet truck.

    You're carrying someone else's meeting, in what role, moderator?

    Follow the agenda as laid out. Manage the timekeeping. Take minutes/notes and issue them.

    Whatever you do, don’t provide any context. People hate context.
