Six expressions for your next information sharing meeting

Six expressions for your next information sharing meeting


Information sharing meetings are one of the most common types of meetings that you are likely to be required to attend. In many cases information sharing meetings involve participants sitting passively, while listening to someone present.

In most cases companies should try and encourage these types of meetings to be more interactive and thus more engaging. This increases the overall satisfaction of the participants and can lead to more ideas and more engagement.

If you are required to participate in an information sharing meeting, or if you are the person who is required to present and give some information on a topic, then take a look at the list of expressions below.

Today, I am going to give you the expression, the definition and an example sentence for context. At the end of the page you will find the Spanish translation to further help with your understanding.

Final thoughts
