#249 Zoom Business Meetings in English

Do you get nervous when you need to speak English over Zoom? Don't worry because in this episode you'll discover how to engage in a business meeting over Zoom. In the second part of this episode, you’ll learn grammar in context with a point-of-view story.

Okay! Let’s start!

I'm not sure if you're good with technology, but as you know, over the past few years, many companies have adopted Zoom for work purposes. Therefore, you're probably already familiar with this app.

And you may have noticed that whenever we connect to Zoom, technical problems tend to arise. Sometimes it's you, and other times a team member.

However, today, let's focus on some useful phrases that can make our work-related Zoom conversations more effective.

To help you feel more confident and prepared, I have put together an example conversation on Zoom.

Participants: John (the host), Mary, Sarah, and Mark.

John: Good morning, everyone. Can you hear and see me okay?

Mary: Yes, John, we can hear and see you clearly.

John: Great! Then let's get started.

So, the first point on our agenda is the new marketing campaign. Sarah, would you like to start?

Sarah: Sure, John. I want to add something before we begin, though. We should also discuss our target audience and their preferences.

John: That's a good point, Sarah. Let's add that to our discussion.

Mary: Sorry, Sarah, I didn't catch that. Could you repeat what you just said?

Sarah: Of course, Mary. I mentioned that we should also discuss our target audience and their preferences.

Mary: Thanks, Sarah.

John: Alright, let's move on to the next point. Mark, please update us on the sales figures.

Mark: Sure, John. Our sales figures have been improving steadily, but we need to focus on our marketing strategies to reach our targets.

John: That's clear, Mark. Thanks for the update. Let's discuss the next point on our agenda. Mary, please summarize the progress on the new project.

Mary: Sure, John. To sum up, we have completed the initial design phase and are now moving onto the development stage.

John: Great work, Mary. Thank you. Does anyone have any questions or comments before we wrap up?

(Everyone remains silent.)

John: Okay, I’ll see you next week then! Bye! Bye!

Mary: Thank you, John. See you next week!

Mark: See you soon!

Sarah: Bye! Bye!
