    Bring to the table

    Hi,

    Regaurd the sentence below, what does "to bring to the table" mean. (I've googled it ending up to alot of results, but still I haven't any idea what could it mean).

    An architect should take the role of fi eld representative seriously, preparing for project meetings and bringing his talents to the table
    as the party most knowledgeable about the details of the construction documents and the needs of the owner.


    Thanks

    Please take more care with your typing and read through your text before posting, Sepmre. You are capable of expressing yourself better than this.

    Before googling it, you could have clicked on Reference near the top of the page, then Phrasal Verbs.

    You would have found this:

    Bring to the table
    — If you bring something to the table, you make a contribution or an offer in a discussion or negotiation.

    Re: Bring to the table

    I've already seen it too, but still It dosen't make any sense to me. Does it means that he [architect] could bring benefits to the project meetings by his talents?
