Business English Memo
posted by Kelly .
You've been put in charge of planning a one day departmental training seminar with Dr. Melanie Dobler as the speaker. You must make travel arrangements for the speaker, reserve a company room large enough for the number of people attending, and requisiton any necessary items, such as computer and screen for a Powerpoint presentation,chairs, tables and photocopies of training materials. In addition, arrange for two breaks and a casual lunch.
Write a memo that outlines the arrangements you've made.
I'm confused on who I'm suppose to be addressing....Im not sure if I'm suppose to be letting all employees who will be attending the seminar know what the final arrangements will be or what?

Im on the same paper. Just started it today. Im taking my time and figuring out if it would be better to address it to the Dr., the employees of the company, or someone in charge of traveling speakers.
