Welcome to the second part of our Business English Pod series on how to support your position or argument in meetings.
Our friend Jack is giving an update on the Costa Rican project. Dan is against the idea, because as production manager, he doesn’t want to lose all his staff.

Jack tries to defend his plan, but has difficulty supporting his argument.
