You need to socialise at the office party

For many people, business socialising is a very important aspect of working life - but some people find it quite tricky, especially if English isn't their first language.

In this special business edition, Neil and Feifei explore basic business socialising language - and find out what to do if you can't quite remember someone's name!

Business socialising: Key phrases

Finding out someone's name:
I think we've met before, haven't we?
You must be...
I can't quite remember your name.

Of course, how silly of me to forget.
Oh yes, of course, I'm so sorry!

Moving on:
How are things with you?
How are you?
