Episode 3 – First Meetings
In the role play I work for a training company and I have a meeting with John at his company to inform him about our products and services and hopefully to sell him something. But first I meet the receptionist.
B Hello Sir.
A Hi. I’m here to meet William Jones. I have an appointment for 10 o’clock.
B OK. I’ll call him and ask him to come to meet you. Hang on a moment please. Hello is that Mr Wyke? You have a visitor here for his 10 o´clock appointment…… right. Ok.
Take a seat he’ll be here in a minute. A Thanks
C Hello Daniel. Nice to meet you.
A Sorry I’m a bit early.
C No problem
A Thank you for seeing me William.
C It’s a pleasure. Would you like to follow me to one of our meeting rooms? A OK. Great.
C Take a seat Daniel. Is it Daniel or Dan?
A Most people call me Dan I suppose, but Daniel’s fine too. C Did you have any trouble finding us?
A No. You’re quite easy to find. It only took me 20 minutes to get here from Aviles. C Would you like a coffee or tea or anything?
A No thanks.
C So what is it exactly you’re company does?
A We specialise in staff training and team building. Have you ever experienced problems with unmotivated employees?
