At the office, Dani asks Leo how did he think the planning meeting went. Leo says it was good but he didn't understand everything. Dani says she told Jack she'd fill Leo in on any items he didn't understand. Jack asked Leo to present the annual report in English. He also wants Leo to send the document to him to review by 6pm.
Meetings in China are usually scheduled well in advance, and it is advisable not to be late even if others are. Arriving late could be insulting to the person calling the meeting. In China, high importance is placed on seniority and rank, and you can expect the more senior parties present to be addressed the most and lead the meeting. Allow more senior colleagues and associates to leave the meeting first.
