— How’s it going in France, Gina? We didn’t do too well there last
— Yes. Our results were terrible. We tried to build up market share but
it just didn’t happen. We just managed to hold on to what we had.
— What exactly was the problem?
— Unfortunately, our agent let us down. We thought we could count on
him to boost sales but he had no commitment, no motivation.
— Well, I suppose you terminated his contract then.
— Yes, there was no way we could renew it. We sounded out a few
possible replacements and found someone else. We get on really
— Good. Let’s hope he’ll be better than the last one.
— He should be. He’s got a very good track record. We’d set up a
meeting on Friday, but he had to call it off — something came up.
— Well, I hope you get a result. I must be going. I’ve got to draw up an
agency agreement myself; I’ve put it off far too long already.
— All the best. Speak to you soon.
