|Sonia||It’s been ten days, and I haven’t come up with any good ideas for the presentation at the meeting.|
|Jenet||Have you done any research on the internet?|
|Sonia||The research that I did manage to get done revealed that previous presentations used to be directly related to the employee responsibilities and duties .|
|Jenet||Don’t think inside the box. You need to think outside the box. Why don’t you meet with the staff and let them suggest a topic to you? Maybe you will get some ideas.|
|Sonia||Sounds like a good idea! I’ll try that, but I hope I don’t open Pandora’s box!|
|Jenet||Don’t worry! I am sure it will go well.|
|After two days…|
|Jenet||Did you meet with the guys in the office and discuss your presentation topics?|
|Sonia||Yes, I did. It was great! I was feeling boxed in trying to do this by myself. Now, I want to deliver a presentation from the employers’ point of view. I mean how employers look at their employees, which skills and work habits are valued, meeting deadlines and much more.|
|Jenet||Look, my idea worked.|
|Sonia||Thank you so much. Let’s go for some coffee.|
