A

A: Hello, Doctor Miller. It's nice to meet you.  

B: Please call me Peter.

A: OK. Are you a medical doctor? It must be helpful when you sell medical equipment.

B: Actually, no. My doctorate was in electronic engineering, but it's still helpful for me when I sell our equipment.


B

Good morning, everyone. I'm happy to be here today to tell you about our new project. My name is Alessandro Rossi. I'm the project leader on the Starlight programming project.


C

Pleased to meet you. Here's my card. My real name is Megumi Tanaka, but people who are not from my country think it's difficult to say my name, so I use another name, Meg, when I'm working internationally.


D

Hello, everyone. My name's Andres Mulligan. I'm very happy to be joining this team for the next few months and learning more about research and development.

Business card contains first name,surname and position of job if they have to so Business card will give us full information about the person who is the person?what kind of tittle does thos person have to?

Hello Alifaraax,

I'm afraid I don't understand your question. A person's title could refer to their job (Head of Marketing / Chief Financial Officer / Senior Researcher), it could refer to a professional qualification which gives a title (Doctor / Professor), or it could refer to a title granted through a person's position in society (President / Cardinal / Senator).

I guess it's business cards are the same in all countries. We use business cards to introduce ourselves, creating new business connections. So you have to share your name, phone number, e-mail, company's name and job title.

In my country, on a business card you may find the logo and name of the company, its phone number, address and e-mail as well. Besides, it may have the product or service provided by the company described in a few words, usually two or three words. And of course the function or job of the employee who uses the business card.
