There's a different expression, to start in on someone — on a person, 这里还有一个不同的表达,“to start in on someone(a person)”,

and if you start in on a person — on your brother, on your wife, 如果你“start in on a person(你的兄弟,你的妻子)”,

that means that you are criticizing them — you're saying something bad — something negative about them. 意思是你正在批评他们,你正在说他们的坏话。

When I was younger, if I didn't do my homework, which was often, my mother would start in on me, meaning she would criticize me. 我年轻的时候,如果我不做作业,那是常有的事,我妈妈就会“start in on me”,意思是她就会批评我。

"Jeffrey, do your homework!" The only person who calls me "Jeffrey" is my mother. “杰弗里,做你的作业!”只有我妈妈会叫我“杰弗里”。

Back to our story, I said that my phone rang and it was "my project manager, Julie." 言归正传,我说我的电话响了,是“我的项目经理朱莉”打来的。

The manager is the person that is in charge of a certain group of people — someone who is the boss, 经理就是管理特定人群的人,就是老板,

and a project is just a set of things for you to do, usually related to each other. 而项目就是一系列需要你做的事,通常这些事情互相关联。

Well, my project manager, who's like my boss, "asked me to come in for a conference call with our head office." 那个,我的项目经理,她就像我老板一样,“通知我参加我们总部的多人电话会议。”

A conference, "conference," call is a telephone call with three or more people. 电话会议(conference)是指三人或三人以上的电话会谈。

And, that's very common in American business and in international business to have a conference call so more than one person can talk on the telephone. 而且,电话会议在美国企业和跨国企业中极为普遍,这样多个人都能进行电话交谈。
