Transcript

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.

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.
