RT: Queensfield Ltd. Robbie Taylor.
GS: Oh hi, this is Gerhard Schmidt calling from Hipax in Berlin.
RT: Oh, hello Mr. Schmidt. How are you?
GS: I’m fine, thank you. And you?
RT: I’m well, thanks.
GS: Good. I’m afraid I have to cancel our meeting next Tuesday morning. I’m going to be away visiting one of our key customers.
RT: No problem. Would Wednesday afternoon be more convenient?
GS: Unfortunately, not. One colleague I wanted come to our meeting will be in Paris and I’ll be in Munich.
RT: I see. Well, would you like me to arrange a telephone conference instead?
GS: Mmm, that’s a good idea. We’re both free at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Will you email me the details?
RT: Of course. Actually, I wanted to call you anyway, Mr. Schmidt. Would you or your colleagues be interested in any of our other project management services, like logistics, for example?
