A sales meeting is designed to learn how to sell a product -- that is, to build relationships, identify needs and outline the benefits of the product. Being able to understand conversations and terms may help you take part in the discussions at a sales meeting, understand what's going on, and make you a more valuable employee and salesperson.
In this lesson we will teach you, through some conversations, what you might hear at a sales meeting or what words you might use while in a sales meeting.

0:11 Hello there! How’s it going?
0:13 Have you ever been to a sales meeting at work?
0:15 I’m sure some of you have.
0:17 Effective communication helps you make your point in a sales meeting.
0:21 Even if you’re there just to observe it, there’s a lot you can learn by listening.
0:25 This lesson will let you listen to some conversations about a sales meeting.
0:30 Let’s get started then!
0:38 We're having a sales meeting tomorrow. Can you make it?
0:41 At what time?
0:42 It should be about 10 o'clock. Is that OK?
0:46 Yes, that'll be fine.
0:48 We're going to go over some suggestions to improve communication with customers.
0:53 Good. I have some suggestions I’d like to make.
0:57 Frank is also going to make some suggestions on how to improve sales in China.
1:02 That'll be interesting. He's got keen insights.
1:05 Yes, he's going to outline some new sales strategies.
1:10 Is Alan attending?
1:12 No, he's flying to San Francisco and won't be able to make it.
1:23 I'd like to open today's meeting. Does everyone have a copy of the agenda? Kevin, you first.
1:29 Thank you, Sir. I'll quickly go over the main points of our last meeting.
1:33 I suggest each one of us give a little background on the research we’ve done on the suggestions discussed last week.
1:39 You'll find most of the information outlined in the summary documents in front of you.
1:44 These figures are interesting. It's clear to me that customer communications are not as effective as they could be.
1:50 True, our marketing efforts really haven't been effective till date.
1:54 I suggest we break up into groups and discuss how we can improve our message.
1:59 That’s a good idea.
2:00 Let’s do that and meet back together again in 20 minutes so that we can continue and complete today’s agenda
2:14 So, Lesley. Show us how you would describe your product.
2:18 My product is called ‘Mr. & Mrs. photo frame’.
2:21 Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and it's a day you'll remember forever!
2:27 Make sure you frame your wedding photographs in nothing but the best.
2:31 Look no further than our gorgeous "Mr. & Mrs." photo frame!
2:36 Hmmm. Nice!
2:38 Its design is modern. This is a frame that will stand out!
2:42 It is made only from the highest quality materials and it is beautifully decorated.
2:48 Okay, not bad.
2:50 Bring a touch of personality to your home or office, or send a gift your friend's way! Order now!
2:57 I like your product a lot. And I like the way you promoted.
3:01 Thank you, Sir.
3:11 You have insight into something if you have a good understanding of it from experience and knowledge.
3:22 A well-thought-out plan that you form before you do anything is called a strategy.
3:32 The agenda for a meeting is a plan for what’s going to be discussed at the meeting, and in what order they are to be discussed.
3:44 Sometimes means the same as selling, but marketing is also used to mean a broader selling strategy and not just a single selling attempt.
3:57 Thank you for watching this lesson. We’ll be back with a new one tomorrow.
