常見誤解

1. AM/PM的M是「半日midday」的意思,AM指的是上半日,PM是指下半日,PM 12:00是下半日的12點,也就是中午,書寫或閱讀時要注意。

2. Networking雖然是「網路network」的延伸詞,在此指的是「人際交流」,在商業中相互交流是非常重要的環節,可以促進彼此的了解,增加合作機會製造雙贏的可能。

3. 邀請函「RSVP」指please respond,記得要回覆是否參加及參加的人數,除了是禮貌之外,也利於工作人員安排座位及膳食、資料文具等等的數量。

Corporate Responsibility企業(社會)責任

Definition: The ethical obligation of a corporation to act in a manner that benefits society at large, encompassing areas such as environmental sustainability, employee welfare, and community involvement.

ESG的起點就是企業對於社會是有相關責任的,企業並不能單純獨善其身,而應該要在所有的決策中同時考量社會成本與對於環境的影響。

Many consumers now prioritize buying from companies that have a strong sense of corporate responsibility.(現在很多消費者優先選擇購買具有強烈企業社會責任感的公司的產品。)

Her role in the company focuses on corporate responsibility, ensuring that they meet their social and environmental targets.(她在公司中的角色專注於企業社會責任,確保他們達到社會和環境目標。)

Seminar座談會

Definition: A meeting or conference for discussion or training on a specific subject, usually led by an expert.

座談會通常是由一系列演講組成的,其中的討論區段稱為panel,參與者則為panelist。

ESG環境保護、社會責任、公司治理

Definition: An acronym for Environmental, Social, and Governance, ESG refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment or business.

ESG的3個字分別是Environmental環境保護、Social社會責任、Governance公司治理,目前最有關聯的話題是碳排放carbon emission,但請理解ESG所涵蓋的內容遠大於碳議題。

Keynote主題演講

所有的大型活動與會議一開始最重要的開場演講就是keynote,會為整場研討會進行基調,講者則稱為keynote speaker,通常是整場活動最重要的嘉賓。

The CEO's keynote at the annual meeting was motivational and set the company's direction for the year.(CEO在年度會議上的主題演講具有激勵性,並為該年度公司的方向定下了基調。)

She was honored to give the keynote speech at the environmental conference.(她很榮幸能在環境會議上發表主題演講。)

Integrate整合

Definition: To combine or coordinate separate elements so as to provide a harmonious, interrelated whole.

integrate為動詞,名詞為integration,不管在商業上的整合或是科技中的製程整合都是很重要的商業詞彙。
