Sample Answer One
I have been part of a club at my organization that brings about change in our company. We are the people who are looked forward to when there is a talk about a change that has to be brought in the organization. Although, there are many meetings that I have attended as part of being its member, I clearly remember a very crucial meeting during my journey.
It was a case of sexual harassment and the person affected by it wanted a solution and still not be brought out in picture. It was a very critical situation because we wanted to bring out justice and that involved interaction with the higher authorities. So, we decided to have a meeting with the HRs about the issue.
The meeting was scheduled on the second Friday of that month and I can recall, I was preparing for that meeting for more than a week. There were talks with the victim and the person being charged for. There were then days when I thought may be I am on the wrong side and then the days when I was confused about the entire scenario. Sometimes it seemed as if everything is facade.
But, the meeting helped me open up a lot. It began with the HR head introducing the members available. SO, we had the HR head, the DC head, the accused and our team. It was a very private meeting involving only the few of us. There were times when we had a heated argument and sometimes there were contradictions on everything. We had to make sure that the justice is being given out and the decision is the right one because it was the concern of career of an individual.
The reason I am going to remember this meeting for a very long time is because it helped me to understand how real life decisions are made. The heads were very transparent when understanding the situation and made the right call at the right time and that is what made the difference. It was the first time that I was the person who led the team and in very many sense was the one who was active and the key decision maker.
Sample Answer Two
There are so many meetings that I have come to attend as soon as I started my work life. But, the one meeting that I am going to remember for a very long time is the one I had with my manager for the first time.
The day we arrived at our given location, we were asked to meet the managers of a project that is very crucial to the company. Initially, I had no idea that it is more of a selection criteria and I just went there and had a talk. But, later did I realized the importance of the meeting and unknowingly I did was the best that could have been done.
The meeting started with all of us giving our introductions and telling what our career goals are. And then he started asking stuff about our knowledge of Business Intelligence and what we would do in a particular scenario. The meeting got very interesting as it approached its climax because we were not just talking about the concepts and the technical issues but were more concerned about how they can be implied to solve the real life issues. What could be done and what needs to be changed. It was amazing and the reason I am going to remember it is because looking back at it, I think it was the best that could have happened to me.
I got selected and the project that I got into made me learn things and do things that I had been in love with. But, the best part, it brought me closer to my mentor, Steve Jobs.
