Dialogue

(Michiko = Japanese; Carl =American;Youssry = Kuwaiti; Heidi = German)
Michiko 
I'm in charge of promoting the company, both within the industry and in the wider community. My main responsibility is to raise our profile and to make sure the image we project is a positive one.
Carl 
Well, my job involves taking tough decisions about our expenditure and any investments we may make. I'm mainly concerned with budget allocation and resource management.
Youssry 
I'm interested in people. I'm responsible for hiring and firing, of course, but also for the welfare and professional development of all the staff here.
Heidi 
I manage a team of ten people, and together we work to design new technologies that the company can take forward to production. My job involves a great deal of research and study, and also a lot of practical testing and trials.
