         “Hello everyone. Today I’m going to explain our new sales
         plan to everybody. This year, our main focus is on opening
         new markets. Next, we have a lot of concrete work to do,
         but the most important thing is for everyone to work hard
         together. Let’s go for it!” What do you think?

         Good. But you’re too serious. You need to reduce the dis-
         tance between you and your listeners.

         Oh. Then I’ll try it again. “Hello everyone. Today I’m going
         to explain our new sales plan to everybody. I feel very hon-
         ored. This year, our focus is on opening new markets. Next,
         we have a lot of concrete work to do, but the most important
         thing is for everyone to work hard together. Let’s go for it!”


 B:
                                     “                   ”      “

         Hmm. Much better than the last time. But at key points,
         your tone can be a little more emphatic. For example, “the
         new sales plan,” “everyone working hard together.”

         I think that’s too exaggerated. It’s like acting in a play.

         It’s not exaggerated at all. If you don’t make the key points
         stand out, there’s no way to get everyone excited.

         Fine, fine. I’ll try again. “Hello, everyone. Today I’m going
         to introduce the new sales plan to everyone. I feel very
         honored. This year, our focus is on opening new markets.
         We have a lot of concrete work to do, but the most important
         thing is for everyone to work hard. Let’s go for it!”

         But I still have a lot of stuff I want to say. Practicing like this
         is more than I can handle.

         Actually, you only need to pay attention to the mood, the
         tone, and making the listeners feel interested. If you do
         that, it’ll be a success.


 A:                                             ......

         Then I’ll practice it one more time. “Hello everyone...”
