Role Play notes: * Would like to offer Tony the opportunity to complete a mentoring/management course so he able to pass on his vast knowledge of our products onto junior staff members in a way that he both feels comfortable with & is the most effective.

* Should Tony feel this is something he would like to pursue, what would be the things he would most like to gain from such a course?

* Taking into account his interest in online marketing see if I can draw his attention moire towards in store marketing as online sales is not something our company is working towards at this stage

This is against the ethical standards of our company, because I am unaware of any company endorsement of his friend’s installation business. This must stop as of today.

* I am hoping Tony leaves our meeting feeling that he is appreciated within our company & that his knowledge & expertise is something he should be proud of.
