Distiguished guests,ladies and gentlement, good morning. I am very honored to have the opportunity to address such a distinguished audience. My name is Monica Li and I am in charge of the PR department of oracle China. What I’d like to do today is provide you with some general information about Oracle Corporation and its latest development in China. Hopefully, this introduction can help you gain a better understanding of our company.
My presentation will be divided into two parts: Oracle and Oracle China. The presentation will last about five minutes. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me at the end of my presentation.
I will start with Oracle, our parent company. Oracle corporation, the world’s ①largest enterprise software company, was ③founded in 1977 by Larry Ellison,Bob Miner and Ed Oates. ④Headquartered in Redwood shores, California, Oracle’s worldwide ⑤headcount now exceeds 42,000, with an ⑥annual revenue of 11 billion dollars. The company offers its Oracle 9i E-Business Platform and Oracle E-business Suite,along with related consulting, education and support services in more than 145 countries around the world.
⑦In 1989 ,Oracle formally entered China’s market and became the ②first global software giant to open offices in China. Relational database technology originated by Oracle is now serving Chinese users. ⑧In July 1991,after nearly two years’ hard work,Oracle established a wholly-owned company in Beijing-Beijing oracle software systems co.Ltd.-to better exploit and serve the rapidly growing market there. On August 8th,2000,Oracle China formally opened its new offices in the China World Trade Centre,Beijing. This prestigious opening showed the development of Orascle’s long-term involvement and commitment in the Chinese market. At present,Oracle China has ⑨set up branches in Beijing,shanghai,Guangzhou and Chengdu ,providing Oracle’s 9i E-Business platform and Oracle E-business suite, as well as related ⑩consulting service ,education and support services for the Chinese market. By speeding up the localisation of products, applications,channels and services, oracle has realised a continuing and healthy development of its business in china.
This is all I want to say about Oracle and Oracle China and I hope this brief introduction has helped shed some light on our company. So ,are there any questions you’d like to ask before we move on?
Hello, and welcome to Standard Electronics. I’m Geoff Bolton, the Factory Manager in charge of the plant you’ll be seeing today. I know you have come a long way today, so we aim to make your tour both interesting and worthwhile. Before we start the tour, I’d like to give you a brief presentation about the company. It will last about 15 minutes and I will be using flip chart. Since there’s quite a lot to cover, I’d be grateful if you’d hold any questions until the end of my talk.
As you can see, I’ve divided up my presentation into 3 main parts. First of all, we’ll run briefly through the history of the company. Secondly, I’ll tell you something about our main markets – this is important in understanding the production process. And finally, I’ll come to the people – our most important asset.
OK! Let’s start with the history. Standard Electronics started out as a private limited company when it was first established in 1985…
I’d like to welcome all of you here today. First, I’m going to tell you about our company, Business Consultant Services, and the positions we are hiring for. After that, we’ll have some time for questions. OK?
Business Consultant Services provides business software and consulting services. We started out in 1997. Our head office is in Seattle, U.S., but we have offices all over the world, and we have approximately 4,000 employees. We have 1,800 clients worldwide. Many of our clients are large corporations, but we also work with small and medium-sized businesses. Our annual income in 2003 was about 90 million dollars.
We’re growing pretty fast right now, and a lot of our growth is in Southeast Asia. We came to Thailand in 2000, and we now manage about 29 accounts here. We’re opening another office in the south of Thailand this month. In addition to Thailand, we have a very busy office in China. We’re working for an oil company in Singapore, and we’re starting 8) g large project for a bank in Malaysia.
So, this is why we are looking for new employees and why I am here. In fact, this is why we’re all here. We have openings for …
I`m sorry, I`m a bit late.
Um…I`m not exactly sure how to start this …
Um…I suppose I should start by telling you something about the Brewery…
It`s old of course，very cold，and … it was founded in 17…1778，yes，I think that`s right.
So it`s a very old brewery and…um…we use traditional production methods and our products are very，very old…very traditional.
Um…oh，we also do European type beer and，well，sale have increase a lot over the last year.
Of course，we were a family firm .Well，in fact，we still are a family firm.
As you know the present owner is Ralph Barrald.
Um…we continue to run as a family firm and this is important to the corporate image.
Well，in fact，this is why we`re here today to discuss the corporate image and decide if we…well，if it needs to change.
We also have horses…you may have seen them delivery the beer to the local pubs，yes?
Yes，yes…um，production has actually dropped a little over the last few years，although profits have actually gone up and that`s something we need to discuss…
I mean，can we continue as a small，independent brewery?
Anyway，that`s about it，so…um…that`s the main question today.
So I don`t know whether that helps at all，but it`s all I can think of really，so，I，I`ll leave…I`ll leave…
I think that`s that，So I`ll leave it there，OK? Right.
