Hi! Everybody, I'm a new member & Bangladeshi! Thanks all.

To start a project in a company is difficult, first, the people always are resisted to change your ways of work and think and second the people might feel scared to be fired. for that reasons, the project must be implemented with careful and intelligence to reach the success.
Thank you for your podcast.

Hello Jovan,
I would like to add that in order to implement a project within a Company, no matter in which field, there will be necessary or rather mandatory to have the management's support.
I have a lot of experience concerning the implementation of new project within the organization, for example I have coordinated the project team in charge with implementation within our Company of an internal control system in accordance with Sarbanes - Oxley regulations, it wasn't easy to do this but a have gained a lot of experience. In my opinion, along with management support it is imperative to communicate in an efficient way with all stuff and envolved employees.

Hello everyone, I'm a new member of this website and I think it's a great opportunity to improve our English.
Relating this topic I want to figure out what's the meaning of "sort out" as well as "half-asleep"
Thank you,

i am a beginner as well, sort out means to arrange in a certain order to conclude and half asleep means neither asleep nor fully awake, napping and slumbering.

Hello, I am from Russia. This is my first article to translate and I have a question: The word OUTGOING!
Can somebody describe the meaning of this word for me.
Thank you

There is a dictionary on the right-hand side of this web page which will explain the meaning of 'outgoing' for you. There are two possible definitions, so choose the one that makes sense in the context of what Gavin is saying.
Best wishes,

hi Ronnie.... the word "outgoing" is mainly used in business (to refer the nature of expense) but you can also use the word in your daily routine . it means outward or anything which is going outside of the premises ... hoping that would help you..

Hello! Thank you for describing. As I understood this word means as the word "very" or "the most". For example, "Outgoing opportunity" is the same as "The most interesting (important) opportunity". Am I right? ))
