Introduction


In retail it is necessary to have meetings with your staff in order to run a successful business. To make sure that these meetings run smoothly everyone has a particular role to play. Furthermore, it is essential that the meeting is properly prepared.

For this webquest you work for the women's clothes department of the Bijenkorf. An English representative of FunFashion Ltd., Leeds, visits the Bijenkorf with an idea for a new clothing line. The manager decides that the representative can come to a meeting to tell the staff more about his/ her products. To be sure that everyone can understand eachother, the meeting is conducted in English.

In this webquest you will work with 3 or 4 other people, who will all play different roles. Together you will prepare a meeting, hold the meeting and make the minutes (notulen) for the meeting.
