I should get ready for the meeting I have with Oskar Larsen, the Norwegian representative in 20 minutes
15 minutes later
Is this Mr. Larsen? Why is he dressed so casually?
Yes, I am. Pleased to meet you Mr. Larsen. You are early, how nice! Should we get to business?
Brian? Must be a Norwegian custom...
Yes, we Norwegians have a habit of being punctual, it is better to arrive earlier than later.
Hello, I am Oskar, you must be Brian
Mr.Larsen? Must be a Canadian custom..
Why is Brian giving me his business card right now? Our meeting has not ended, it has not even started yet..
Before I forget, here is our company business card, Mr.Larsen.
Before the meeting commends, Brian Williams tries to engage Oskar Larsen with small talk, in attempt to get to know him better. These attempts at small talk are not appreciated by Oskar, who would like to get straight to business
Yes, of course, I apologize for the delay
I am sorry but can we get started with the business deal?
20 minutes into the business meeting
$10, 000 seems like a big amount for the services, Is there anyway you can lower this price?
I am sorry but I will not lower the cost for the services you require from us.
