to run (a meeting)煩請用英文解釋.英英翻譯

to run (a meeting).......請問...\"to run\"...要如何用英文解釋.......英英翻譯...感謝回答...



Terrible!! I feel just terrible! Today, I was to prepare the agenda for our meeting and do some introductions and report. Only, when I stood up to speak, I couldn’t think of any of the right things to say.

Update 2:

Why, oh why, didn’t I listen to my English teacher last year, when she gave us examples of how to use English to run a meeting? I could talk to them in the car yesterday,

Update 3:

so I didn’t think it was going to be hard in the meeting, but my boss was there, and everything just seemed so formal and serious. I wore comfortable clothes, because I didn’t want to be too stiff, but they wore suits. My boss looked at my funny – I suppose because I didn’t wear the right clothes.

Update 4:

Then the customer wasn’t willing to talk about one of the items on the agenda, and nobody knew what to say next. My boss was angry at me for everyone being embarrassed, but she couldn’t say it in front of them.

Update 5:

Besides that once we started talking about one item, it took almost all morning, and one of our office staff had to keep running out to get more information, other files and product samples.

Update 6:

I hadn’t told them what to prepare. Needless to say, by the end of the day, nobody was very happy, especially me. I feel like crying, I’m so upset!….
