Exercises

1: Work in pairs. Introduce yourself to your partner following proper actions.
2: In the following scenario, Francesco Amos and Jennifer Brower are two project managers at Icon International. They are standing in a conference room with Michael York, a human resources representative. Jenifer and Michael don’t know each other, so Francesco needs to introduce them.

Francesco: Jennifer, I’d like you to meet Michael York. He’s an HR representative and can help us develop our program. Michael, this is Jennifer Bower. She’s one of our most capable project managers.

Jennifer: (politely making the correction by enunciating the “r” and showing she is happy to meet Michael) Actually, it’s Brower. Michael, it’s nice to meet you. I’m glad you’re on our team.

Michael: Thank you, Jennifer. I really look forward to working with you and Francesco.

Francesco: Oh, Jennifer, I’m sorry. I’m so bad with names sometimes.

Now answer the following:

How did Jennifer respond when she was incorrectly introduced?

3: When should you introduce yourself to another person?
