Meeting people for the first time. Talking about what you do. Opening a meeting

Лабораторная работа

Менеджмент, консалтинг и предпринимательство

When a person has been introduced to you, Pleased to meet you /Nice to meet you are both semi-formal responses. They sound natural and are useful for most situations. Less formal responses include Good to meet you / Great to meet you. The most formal response is How do you do? This is used less in modern business. When introducing two people, it is helpful to say a little about what they do, e.g. This is Jane, she s organising training courses for our Singapore branch. The information should be brief but include enough detail to encourage conversation between the two people being introduced.

Laboratory work №1.

Let's get started.

Meeting people for the first time. Talking about what you do. Opening a meeting.

Meeting people.

Discussion.

How do you get to know who the other people are at a meeting? Do you do any of these things?

Introduce yourself informally before the meeting.

Wait for the chairperson to formally introduce you.

Exchange business cards.

Introduce yourself during the coffee break.

Wear name badges.

How do you introduce yourself in your language? What information do you usually give about your job and company when you meet someone for the first time?

Good business practice.

take and if there will be any breaks.

Prepare any information that you may

need to talk about at the meeting.

Introducing yourself and others

Discussion.

At the start of a meeting you may need to introduce yourself to other people, or the chairperson may introduce you. Match the phrases with the functions (1-6). Some functions match with more than one phrase.

Pleased to meet you.    This is ... What's your job?   I'm an accountant.

What's your name?   What do you do?  Nice to meet you.  I'm Robert.

1. introduce yourself                           

2. ask someone's name

3. introduce another person

5. ask about someone's job

6. tell people what your job is

Good business practice.

    I'm Robert is a polite and direct way of introducing yourself. A more formal and less direct way turns the introduction into a question Can/May I introduce myself I'm Robert.

When introducing others, This is ... is neutral and is appropriate for most business situations. A more formal expression is I'd like to introduce you to ... . A less formal expression is Have you met... ?

When a person has been introduced to you, Pleased to meet you /Nice to meet you are both semi-formal responses. They sound natural and are useful for most situations. Less formal responses include Good to meet you / Great to meet you. The most formal response is How do you do? This is used less in modern business.

    When introducing two people, it is helpful to say a little about what they do, e.g. This is Jane, she s organising training courses for our Singapore branch. The information should be brief but include enough detail to encourage conversation between the two people being introduced.

For those, who need to open a meeting, the following may need to be considered:

- Welcome participants and introduce any visitors / new members

- Make sure that everyone knows the aims and objectives of the meeting.

For those who do not currently need to open meetings, introductions are also practised in a more general business context.

The following cultural factors may need to be considered when introducing people in an international context:

- Order in which people are introduced (Should the most senior person be introduced first?)

- Business cards (Can they be exchanged casually or should they be handed over with formality? Should you read the information carefully?)

- Handshake or bow? (What physical gestures are important?)

- When to use titles and first names (If you are unsure, it is better to make the introduction formal. It is a good idea to wait to be invited before using first names).


Reading 1

Read the examples of two conversations.

Conversation 1 “Introduce yourself “

Lucas: Hi, I am Lucas.

Shula: Nice to meet you, Lucas. I’m Shula.

Lucas: Pleased to meet you, Shula. What’s your job?

Shula: I’m an engineer. What do you do, Lukas?

Lucas: I’m a student.   

Conversation 2 “Introduce others “

James: Hadi, this is Lu. Lu’s an accountant. Lu, this is Hadi. Hadi is a designer.

Hadi: Please to meet you, Lu.

Lu: Nice to meet you Hadi.

Exchanging business cards

When you meet someone for the first time you often exchange business cards. It is a good idea to have one side of your card translated into the language of the country that you are visiting. Look at the different styles of exchanging business cards. How do you give and receive business cards in your culture?

Formal.

Some cultures treat business cards formally and with great respect.

The information on the card can include the title of the person and their qualifications.

In some cultures the person receives the card in both hands and reads the information carefully.

It is not polite to write on a card unless the person giving the card says that it is OK.

Informal.

Some cultures see business cards simply as a way to exchange important personal details (name, company and contact numbers).

The cards can be read quickly and then put in a pocket.

It is OK to write additional information on the card.


Asking about someone's job.

Match each question 1-3 with two responses a-f.

  1.  What do you do?
  2.  What exactly do you do
    in your job?
  3.  What kind of company
    do you work for?

a.    I'm with Amtel; it's a multinational company.

b.   I'm an account executive.

c.    I work in the retail business.

d.   I'm responsible for planning the

company's financial strategy.

e.    We manufacture sports equipment.

f.   I sell electrical products to wholesalers

Good business practice.

You are waiting for a meeting to start. Introduce yourself to your partner using the information about your job, company and job activities.

Ex:

Name: Larry Mitchell

Job title: Production Manager

Job description: you coordinate projects in the factory

Company name: WNG Plastics

Company description:   manufactures bottles
