At the office


At the appointed time Ivan arrived at Mr. Freiser's office by car. Mr. Freiser greeted Ivan with warm smiles and kind words.

Frank: Oh, Ivan I haven't seen you for ages. How are you getting on these days?

Ivan: Not bad. I hope you are doing well too.

Frank: I would say so. How are your classes, young man?

Ivan: I understand you are kidding but I like the sessions we

are having here. There are a few important things 1 have

learned here. And I've met some businessmen whose

business looks very promising for us.

Frank: Good for you. And would you like some tea or coffee

before we get down to business.

Ivan: Some coffee, please.

Frank: The secretary will bring coffee for us in a minute.

Ivan: I believe we could speak about our business now, if you

don't mind.

Frank: I agree with you here. We studied your enquiry for our security devices and we could offer you some very mod­ern ones.

Ivan: Could I see them while I'm here? Then it will be much easier for me and the General Director of my company to make a decision about the range of devices to buy.

Frank: No problem. Our Production Director will take you to our production shop and you will see all the devices we are offering to our customers at present. We have sold quite a lot of each type and we have not got a single complaint. They have never failed our customers.

Ivan: It sounds very convincing. And will the Production Di­rector be coming soon?

Frank: The Secretary will invite him after we have coffee.

Ivan: I see.

Frank: By the way, here is the latest organigram of our company. You may have a copy if you wish.

Ivan: Thank you. It will help me to speak with the Production Director.


Here is the organigram of Mr. Freiser's company:
