Receptionist: Yes. that would be fine.
哈里:Ok quiet down people, I wish to commence this meeting. First order of the summary meeting is a progress report from the sales team.
萨姆:So far things couldn`t have gone any better. The team has finally come together and is performing as a single entity. It`s incredible to see.
哈里:Really? Could you elaborate on their progress?
萨姆:Sure, so far our actual sales figure is 150% above our forecasted level of sales. The Team has further subdivided into smaller teams to concentrate their focus more.
哈里:What result has braking down the team into smaller groups had?
萨姆:It enables them to focus much more intensely on their intended sales target. This has resulted in far more effective sales strategies.
哈里:But has there been any overlapping or breakdowns in communication? Smaller groups often result in more inefficiency if anything.
萨姆:True, but with constant and tightly controlled overall management, I have managed to keep it together.
哈里:So that team development consultant we brought in a month ago has worked a wonder, has he?
萨姆:Yes. It has resulted in a remarkable change in team confidence and effectiveness.
Paul: The next item is the financial report. Now the treasurer has the floor.
Susan: Thank you. I assume everybody has previewed the profit and loss statement. Then I’ll make an explanation.
Paul: Why doesn’t it include the payment by BCD company?
Susan: The statement is made at the end of the month and their check was a few days late, so it missed the cutoff point.
Paul: Will the payment be shown in the next month report?
