Instructions and Scoring

You are required to make 2 posts on 2 separate days (see scoring below), therefore it is strongly suggested that you make your first post early in the week (by Wednesday) so that you have 4 remaining days to make your final post. (week ends Sunday night).

Your responses should be complete, detailed and well thought out. I am looking for original input so please share your experiences so we can all learn from them.

Please note, any questions that I ask within the threaded discussion can be answered and will count as posts like the general topic below. I am looking forward to some great discussions!

The Office Talk will close at 11:59 PM Sunday. You will not be able to make any responses once the discussion has closed, please allocate your time accordingly.
