  • She's just such a Tom.

  • Sorry to interrupt.

  • I just wanted to check.

  • You're OK with may leading this strategy for stock management.

  • Oh, of course you deserve it.

  • That was a nice touch, Anna.

  • But, Tom, now you must help me.

  • Hey, Anna.

  • That's not the best way to ask for help.

  • Remember what I've always told you about politeness.

  • Be polite.

  • Yes.

  • You keep telling me that on.

  • If you want someone to help you ask them.

  • Don't tell them.

  • Even if it is Tom.

  • Oh, right.

  • I'm in a bit off a panic.

  • I've never done this before.

  • I don't know where to begin.

  • Well, start by asking your colleagues for help like this.

  • I would be most grateful if you could give me some help, please.

  • Could I ask you for some advice?

  • I know you're busy, but could you spare me a few minutes of your time, please?

  • Go on, give it a try.

  • Right.

  • Thanks.

  • And I would be most grateful if you could give me some help, please.

  • Off.

  • Of course.

  • Hannah.

  • Why didn't you say I'd be delighted?

  • I've lost count of the number of projects I've lead over the years.

  • Thanks.

  • So where do you think I should begin?

  • Uh, how's the stock management strategy coming along?

  • Oh, very good, Paul.

  • Actually, could I ask you for some advice, please?

  • Yes, of course.

  • Although I don't know if I will be of much use.

  • Now.

  • Where did I put those damn documents?

  • I'm very grateful for this opportunity, but I'm a little unsure of where to start.

  • Thomas looking for some office old work, but really?

  • To be honest, this isn't Tom Specialty.

  • At a time like this, I would ask Dinis Dinis.

  • Yes.

  • She may only be the office assistant, but she always has words of wisdom, right?

  • Custard creams or chocolate?

  • Digestive?

  • What?

  • Biscuits?

  • Oh, custard creams, please.

  • Uh, Dinis, I know you're busy, but could you spare a few minutes of your time place?

  • Of course, Anna.

  • Always happy to help you.

  • Well, you know the stock management control system.

  • The one you've now got to work out.

  • Well done for getting that.

  • Thanks.

  • It was okay writing it down for Paul.

  • But how do I put it into practice?

  • There's just too much to do.

  • Calm down, Anna.

  • You'll be fine.

  • The first thing you need to is looked at current system.

  • Look at our current system.

  • How do I do that?

  • Easy.

  • Just take the lift down to the warehouse and speak to Mr Ingle and then write down what you find on Draw up an action plan of tasks.

  • You need to do like a shopping list.

  • I'm very good at those.

  • Go and say Mr Ingle.

  • Ah, do I have to?

  • He's okay.

  • Really.

  • Anna, if you approach him in the right way.

  • He won't bite your head off.

  • What?

  • Bite my head off.

  • Oh, well, if we won't bite me, then I suppose I should go and see him.

  • Thanks for your advice, Denise.

  • I could kiss you, right.

  • I'm going to go and see him right now.

  • Make an action plan a good idea.

  • Well done, Denise.

  • You're smarter than you look and well done, Anna.

  • But maybe not Tom.

  • I wonder how he's getting on here, and I've got them.

  • Look, all my ideas from my last stop control project pages and pages of them.

  • Just copy these.

  • They're brilliant.

  • I know.

  • Too late.

  • I've just seen her in the lift.

  • Fancy accustomed Queen Tom.

  • So Anna is off to speak to the prickly Mr Ringel.

  • Otherwise she might get her head bitten off and it could get very messy.

  • See you next time.
