I am a little frustrated by our recent conference calls. Despite repeated efforts to engage you to collaborate, I still find the focus of many of you too much on your own markets and not enough on helping your international colleagues.
Moreover, the presentations are still not standardized enough — some are too short and some are too long. For the next meeting, each person will have a maximum of 15 minutes and will need to use this time and NO MORE. I will be very strict about this.
Also, please ensure that you are able to allocate the full three hours for this meeting. If you wish to leave early, I will insist that an exceptional excuse be provided. And please try to use a landline, as poor connections are not helpful!
Best regards Jean-pierre
