Unit 5: Cold Calling

Useful tips

Be clear and concise about who you are and the purpose of the call.
Use questions to help and guide the person you are calling.
Always use titles (such as Dr, Mr, and Ms) and never first names.
Don’t be offended by hostile behavior. It’s not personal.

Conversation

Macey Chance: this is Macey Chance from Turner & Young Consultants. Am I speaking to Mr. Given?
Speaker 1: No.

Mr. H:Trancross Power and Gas, project management office.
MC: Good morning. Am I speaking to Mr. Harvey?
Mr. H: Speaking.
MC: Oh hello, Mr. Harvey. This is Macey Chance from Turner & Young Consultants.
Mr. H: Oh, yes.
MC: Do you have a moment to speak to me?
Mr. H: Um…well, yeah.
MC: Thank you. My company specializes in helping power industry companies manage risk, Mr. Harvey. Do you think that’s something that might be of interest to you?
Mr. H: Er…well, we have risk management plans in place, you know.
MC: I’m sure! But may I ask you a question, Mr. Harvey? Do you have plans in place for handling risks generated by climate change?
Mr. H: U, it depends on what you mean exactly. Of course, we have plans in place for damage to our power plants from bad weather.
MC: Well, managing short-term risk is very important of course. But would you like to find out about ways to manage risk caused by long-term adjustments to weather patterns? I’m talking about global warming and the impact that will have on energy supplies.
Mr. H: Um, that’s very unpredictable, isn’t it?
Mr. H: yes, you’re quite right, Mr. Harvey. And very risky. That’s why my company specializes in designing plans that minimize the risks for companies like yours. Would it be possible to arrange a meeting where I could explain our services in more detail?
Mr. H: Well, it could be interesting.
MC: Fine. When’s a good time for you, Mr. Harvey?
Mr. H: Er, let me just check my appointments. Um, how about Friday this week, 2 p.m.?
