Job Description

[PROJECT CLARIFICATION] I would like one person/studio to complete the whole of this project so they would need access to a female who could do two voices and one male voice. Quote should include post production.

Three speakers are needed for the podcast - two females and one male.

The podcast is aimed at non-native English speakers. Don't read too quickly or slowly - slightly slower than natural speed. Please pronounce everything clearly. Some of the script is conversational in nature.

Entire script is included in attachment.

Female speaker #1 (blue text): 890 words

Male speaker (red text): 943

“Results depend on relationships.” That’s what Don Petersen says. He is the ex-CEO of America’s Ford Motor Company. You will find that being able to make small talk—especially before a business meeting—will help build good relationships. And, good business relationships will help you get the results you want. Think of small talk as an engraved business card: small but impressive. Impressive, that it, if you do it well.

Listen now to small talk used by Dan, who is about to make a presentation featuring his leadership training firm. He especially wants to win approval from Susan Lynch, head of employee relations for a multinational firm. Pay attention to Dan’s manner and manners as well.

India could overtake Britain and have the world's fifth largest economy within 10 years as the country's growth accelerates, a new report says.
India's economy may surpass the US and be second only to China's by the middle of the century, the report by investment bank Goldman Sachs says.
The report says India's program of reforms has brought increased competition and efficiency.
But there will be a heavy cost as India demands more and more energy.
Everywhere you turn in India's cities there are signs of economic boom - new cars jamming the streets, middle-class housing and shopping malls replacing farmland, and airports full of travelers.
Within a decade India can overtake Italy, France and the UK to become the world's fifth largest economy if it keeps up its current rate of expansion, according to analysts at Goldman Sachs.
By 2050 India's economy could be larger even than America's, only China's will be bigger, the bank predicts.

Despite all the worry and uncertainty felt by the business community back in 1998, modern Hong Kong prides itself on keeping business as usual since mainland China took political control.

But all over Hong Kong, everything changes. Building work is constant and whole areas of Victoria Harbour have been reclaimed from the sea to make space for new developments. Yet so much is the same - the noonday gun is fired every day near Causeway Bay as it has been since colonial days; horses still race around Happy Valley racetrack; and most of the residents continue to make money.

China has protected the 'one country - two systems' principle in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has its own border controls - on landing at HK airport, foreign visitors fill out a Hong Kong arrivals card, then hand over their departure card at the border when crossing into neighboring Shenzhen on the mainland where they hand in a Chinese arrivals card, just as if passing from one country to another.
