Leo: I’ve made most of the arrangements and I think it’s going well. I’m planning to send out information about the two-day event to the managers at the end of this week.
Sharon: What do you have set up for the opening day? There’s normally a welcome dinner.
Leo: That’s what I have arranged. Then, for the following day, I’ve lined up several speakers and panels to talk about productivity, teamwork, and the other topics we discussed.
Sharon: Good. What about recreation? We don’t want it to be all work and no play.
