Now listen, and fill in the spaces.
Woman: Hello. This is Alison in Head Office.
Man: Oh, hello.
Woman: The CEO has asked me to contact you about the memo you sent everyone yesterday ... where you asked for comments on the bid you've just put together - for Stratford Electronics.
Man: Oh, right.
Woman: Well he's very happy with it on the whole, but does think the introduction is rather lengthy and includes more statistics than are necessary.
Man: No problem, I can shorten it easily.
Woman: And most of the contents of the actual bid are fine, but you do refer to the annual report which won't be out until May.
Man: Oh, right... I'll get rid of that.., yes. And I was thinking there's enough with the section on the existing contracts we have, so I could take out the stuff on the new contracts ... the ones we're about to start.
Woman: In fact, he specifically said that he thought mentioning them was a very good selling point.
Woman: And he'd like you to have something in your concluding remarks about the growth in overseas sales, not just the stuff on domestic markets.
Man: Yes, I was wondering about that.
Woman: And that's all really. Easy to adjust I think.
Man: OK, well thank the CEO for looking at it. It's very helpful.
Now listen to the recording again.
