Right. Listen everybody, listen.
Can you listen, please?
Right then, what about your meetings – how did they go? Was everything OK?
No it wasn’t.
Yes, all right. I suppose.
Yes? Or did you have any problems?
There’s too many people off sick.
What was that? Sorry, I can’t hear you.
Please be quiet. I can’t hear.
What? You think there are too many people going off sick?
Load of rubbish!
What? You mean you don’t Charlie?
What do you mean you don’t have a problem?

Look, please be quiet. I can’t hear.

Meeting 2
Right then, I think we should start.
Now, as you all know, we’re here to discuss the main issues arising from the last departmental meetings.
As you can see, there are six items on today’s agenda.
We only have this room until 3 o’clock, so let’s try to stick to the agenda.
Brad, could

you start by telling us about the problems we’ve had with unauthorized access to our intranet, and what you’re thinking of doing to prevent this happening.

Isn’t it obvious what the problem is?
We need to ask staff to bring sick notes every time they’re absent.
It’s simple!
That will make people think twice before calling in sick.
Actually, I think there’s more to it than that.

I think we need to discuss this in more detail.

Paul, what do you think of Keith’s proposal to outsource the cleaning staff?
Well.
We certainly can’t afford to keep on the current number of staff, but I’d advice against outsourcing the cleaning completely.
Maybe we could consider employing a small number of full-time cleaners, and employing the remainder through an agency.

Can I just ask Paul if he remembered to ask his department to stop taking their holidays all at the same time?
Well, I tried telling them that it was…
Actually, I think we should move on to the next point now.
Time is running short and we still have two more items to discuss.
Does anyone have anything to add to that before we finish?
I don’t think so.
No, I think that’s about everything.
OK let’s go over what we’ve agreed.
