懇談会の司会を務めよう

Presiding over a social gathering
お客様が来日されたときなど、懇親会が開かれることは多々あります。そんな懇親会はビジネスの場とは少し違った雰囲気となり、お互いをより深く知る大切な場面ともなりますね。どんな集まりであっても、司会を務めることは簡単なことではありません。場の雰囲気を和ませるジョークなども言えるといいですね。

Would you kick off this social gathering?

Hi my name is Takatsu Hiroaki. I' m very grateful to all of you who helped make this social gathering possible. I'd introduce myself in a minute though some people hear same thing again and again. I joined this company from this month and now working under Tanaka-san. Now I'm so enjoying working with you all and impressed by this company's free culture.

Hi my name is Takatsu Hiroaki. I' m very grateful to all of you who made this social gathering possible. I will take a minute to introduce myself, even though some people hear the same thing again and again. I have joined this company this month and I am now working under Tanaka-san. Now I'm so enjoying working with you all and I am impressed by this company's free culture.

1. This is a simpler way to express this.
2. This is a more natural expression.
3. I just completed this sentence.
Welcome to the company Mr. Hiroaki! I am glad to know that you like it here! We will do great things together. Is this your first job?

No, I have finished my previous job last month. I continue to work in this company without any vacation. In previous company, I played the role as a project manager of making the car maker's website with around 10 people.

No, I finished my previous job last month. I will continue to work in this company without any vacation. In previous company, I was a project manager in charge of making the car maker's website with around 10 people.

1. The Past Simple Tense is required here.
2. "will+infinitive" fits better here
3. I made this sentence more natural.
I see. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. So, how does it make you feel to work with 300 people instead of 10?

It's so exciting! Acutually I'm afraid that there's a lot of rules in such a big company, however, I'm able to work so freely!
By the way shall I explain today's program?

自然な表現

It's so excited! Actually I'm afraid that there are a lot of rules in such a big company, however, I'm able to work so freely! By the way shall I explain today's program?

1. "excited" is used when describing our feelings, "exciting" is for describing things and events
2. Plural form of the verb needed.
That sounds great!
Oh, please! By all means. Kindly start today's program. Mr. Kobayashi and I have been waiting for this.

Kindly thank you. So let's introduce today's program. First of all Mr Saito will have the keynote speech about "Rating and Buzz of web marketing" . It is the guide to the next session, that is, workshop. Yes, in today's social gathering, we'll do workshop so as to exchange our ideas and opinions about current web marketing. In short, the objective of this gathering is knowledge sharing. Do you have any questions so far?

Kindly thank you. So let's introduce today's program. First of all Mr Saito will have the keynote speech about "Rating and Buzz of web marketing" . It is the guide for the next session, that is, workshop. Yes, in today's social gathering, we'll do workshop in order to exchange our ideas and opinions about current web marketing. In short, the objective of this gathering is knowledge sharing. Do you have any questions so far?

1. Wrong preposition.
2. An alternative word choice.
No, no questions so far. You are very clear and it's easy to follow you. Please, feel free to continue.

OK, let's move on to next. After workshop, we'll have the brain storming session. This time, I'll be a facilitator and all of us are expected to commit the talk. The theme of the brainstorming is the same as the keynote speech - rating and buzz. Here is the post-it and pens for each. You'll write down what you think and share with your colleague. At last, you'll summrize them according to topic and make one opinion. I'm afraid that it's a little complicated. Would you make sense?

1. This is enough, there is no need to add anything else.
2. Definite article required.
3. "to do the talk" is the expression
4. Plural form of the verb required.
5. This question makes more sense in this case.
