Mr. Robin Williams, the president of Bucks Run Software Pvt. Ltd. flew in from the US to Nepal for a meeting where all the department heads provided presentations on their activities and results. The engineers were technically fantastic and knew their jobs but were very poor at presenting. They often had too much information on their slides and they would read from them. Some of them were visibly very nervous and some others were unfocused and would go off in a different direction. The President also felt the format of the meeting was ineffective and asked the Director of Human Resources, Mr. Shailesh Karanjit to arrange training for the engineers. 

Questions:

A. If you are to be the Director Human Resources, what sort of training would you arrange for the engineers so that they can give a better presentation the next time? [8]

B. Also, suggest ways to ensure that the meetings are conducted effectively in the future days.

2. You manage the conventions department for a hotel, where you supervise an employee named Robert. Robert is responsible for meeting with companies that hold events at the hotel. This morning, you received the following email from Robert:

To: Naomi Simmons

From: Robert Marshall

Subject: Laptop

Naomi,

Can we purchase a laptop for the department? I think it would be great to have one available for client presentations.

Thanks! I’ll look forward to using it for Pepsi on March 1, when I have a meeting scheduled with the division president.

Robert

Respond to Robert’s email. You won’t be able to approve this request for the following reasons:

⚫ You have no budget for this capital expense. It’s possible to budget for this next year, but you’re not sure a laptop just for client presentations would be worth the expense. You really don’t see the point because you recently spent a lot on printing beautiful materials, which Robert takes to clients with him.

• Robert started work at your company only one month ago. Although you encourage ideas, you do not like Robert’s presumptuous tone.

⚫ Also, you’d like to encourage Robert to put more time and thought into his ideas. Although not a huge expense, a laptop for your department would need to be justified and Robert would benefit from supporting his suggestions more convincingly.

3. Write a job application for the post of IT officer, published in Daily Mail newspaper, UK of 7th September 2021. You can address Amy Gomez, Human Research Manager, ITechArt Company, London, UK. Also prepare your updated resume.

****BEST OF LUCK****
