When one gal stood as a leader thn the company guy asked her that have u introduced urself to the grup and have u asked their names. so do familiar wid the names of everyone and introduce urself and listen carefully whn sumone is speaking coz he may ask u in between that wht the other guy is speakin. be attentive and speak to the point and defend ur point nicely
