Speaking

Tonight, I was invited to a dinner with some senior leaders. That was a little embarrassed for me because I’m not senior enough to have dinner with them. A global colleague came here for one week, our CEO planned welcome dinner for him. Why I was invited was because my director won’t attend the dinner, then the CFO said please come with us. I don’t know the French colleague, I never met him before. I don’t know how to choose the topics to talk with him.
