the differences between formal and informal meetings

Post  Jokie Lu on Wed Sep 10, 2014 4:12 pm

For the formal meeting, firstly the location is very important. it is always chose in a meeting room or other formal place. Secondly, make sure that people invited are present. And then, the topic discussed that day must be fully prepared. If there are several proposals, people should vote for these proposal. And a time taker is also very important to keep a record. For the imformal meeting, the place to hold a meeting is casual. People can hold it in a resturant or a coffee shop. The topics can be brought up on the meeting and even no decision is made on that meeting. People can also share their ideas freely.

About Basic Steps of Formal Meeting

Post  Alfred Chui on Wed Sep 10, 2014 4:45 pm

First of all, the preparation should be well done, such as the topic, agenda, making sure everyone is well informed and the exact attend number, the place where the meeting held, all the material needed, speech draft, etc. During the meeting, the chairperson should clearly put out the topics, adjust the atmosphere, and there should be a person to write down the main points about the content of the meeting. Before ending the meeting, chairperson should notice the feedback from the attendant, and answer their question.

the differences between formal and informal meetings

Post  angel_yu on Thu Sep 11, 2014 11:53 am

In my opinion, the difference between formal and informal meeting can be concluded as following:first, the ways of the speaker,In informal meetings, the presenter may begin with expressions like “OK” or “ Right” whereas in formal meetings, “ Good morning/afternoon” is often used for greeting and the presenter usually opens the meeting with expressions like “ I would like to ---”, “ Welcome to ---”, “ It’s a pleasure to---”, etc. to start the meeting. Furthermore, in informal meetings, the tone of the presenter can be casual and relaxed.second, the dressing of the people in the meeting.The former one may be more decent then the latter one.last,the place of the meeting. the atmosphere in formal meetings is generally formal e.g. board room. Informal meetings are generally not planned well in advance. The members are not notified through formal means. They generally take place in neutral surroundings, for example in a restaurant rather than a boardroom.

The differences between formal and informal meetings.

Post  Kit Fan 11106011052 on Fri Sep 12, 2014 1:50 am

Members at a formal meeting should obey some rules and say carefully with responsibility for there words. It's more serious and cautious.But at an informal meeting, you are more relax and comfortable.
Formal meetings often take place in meeting rooms or somewhere with a large screen. But informal meetings may just be held in a restaurant coffee shop or someone’s house.
A formal meeting always has certain topics to be discussed. There are conclusions at the end of the meeting. But an informal meeting is generally without plan and is casual.

Post  11106014010 on Fri Sep 12, 2014 4:51 am

Firstly, in the mode of attire, if the meetings is formal, people need to wear the correct clothes, for example, men in suit with tie and women in dress. But in informal meetings, people can wear many types of cloth.
Secondly, formal meetings usually occur in meeting room sit around conference table, and it often arranged in advance. As for informal meetings, it can hold in anywhere and any time just the people go together.
Last but no least, informal meetings like a casual talk, everyone can talk what they want. But in formal meetings, if the participators want to say something, it is better approval by the leader.

In a formal meeting, there is a chairperson to hold the meeting.
Everyone gets the agenda before the meeting start.
Chairperson welcome everyone and announce who is absent.
And then chairperson will announce the key points and put it a vote and draw a conclusion.
After the meeting, the minutes will sent out a meeting note to everyone.

Differences Between Formal and Informal Meetings

Post  Tramy Shen on Sun Sep 14, 2014 1:15 pm

Formal meetings varies from informal meetings in a few aspects:
A formal meeting is a pre-planned meeting. It has a predetermined set of topics that one wishes to discuss along with a set of objectives that one wishes to achieve at the end of the meeting. At a formal meeting, generally it is a senior executive who presides over the affair. The members of the meeting are often given a considerable period of notice before the meeting, preferably through formal means such as memos. As the title suggest, the atmosphere in such meetings is generally formal e.g. board room.
By contrast, informal meetings are generally not planned well in advance. The members are not notified through formal means. They generally take place in neutral surroundings, for example in a restaurant rather than a boardroom.

Post  11106011032 on Mon Sep 15, 2014 7:49 am

There are many tasks of a chairperson in a formal meeting.

First of all, it's very important for him to handle the meeting as his plan. The accidents are unknown.

Secondly, different people have different opinions. Sometimes it's a challenge for him to make the meeting held in a happy ending.

Thirdly, in a formal meeting, everything is serious. It's difficult for the chairperson to make sure everything and everyone is ready.
