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.

I don´t know. I have never seen a business card where I live. But I suppose a business card should have your name, your position in your work and your email and phone number
