S Ridgeway Park,Stephanie James speaking.
A Hello,Mrs Jmaes.This is Alan Barker,here.
S Oh,hello,Dr Barker.I was going to call you today about your talk next month.It's
getting quite close now and there are a couple of things I need to check and
finalise with you.
S Well,the first thing is the tittle of your talk,I have here"Assessing Performance".But
you said you might want to change it.
A Yes,that's right.The new title is now"Measuring Performance".
S Ok.And I also need to know if you'd prefer to give your talk in our conference
room or lecture theatre.
A I'd prefer the conference room,if that's possible.
S There's no problem at all.Most speakers prefer that.And what about equipment?Is
there anything special you'll need?
A Well,apart from the usual things like a whiteboard and VCR,I'll need a CD-player.
S I'm afraid we haven't got one.Would a cassette player do instead?
A Yes,that'll...that'll be OK.
S Right,I'll make a note of that.Oh,and there's one other thing.Can I just confirm
your fee?Was it 200 Pound?
A Well,the actual figure we agreed on was 250 Pound.But my organisation will invoice
you for that.
S Ok.Dr Barker,That's fine.I'll pass that information on to our Accounts
Department.And we look forward to seeing you on the 19th.
