I am in a fix

Last week my company members made a presentation to make of a tool to one of our Business clients. Having worked with the Business client for sometime now, he and I were generally chatting and he mentioned that he could hardly follow the presentation made because of the thick Indian accent.
I was confused if I should let the senior person know that his accent was not followed in the meeting or should I let the potential opportunity to expand business slip by?
What would you do?

As you all agree it was a tricky situation for me. Fortunately the senior person who gave the presentation doesn't work in the same place that I do. I met with another person who works locally and told him that the client felt that our presentation was too quick for him to follow and that he could not understand and appreciate most of the capabilities of our tool. So I was going to arrange for another meeting with the client where we could walk over the tool. This was well received ... and tomorrow we have another demo with the client.

Wishlist - Bucket

Tagged by Starry ...

Lets start with the ones I wanted to do and actually was able to achieve it.

* I always wanted to study on scholarship and I actually passed a National level exam and managed to fund my education for most part.
* I wanted to be on the front page of newspaper for my achievements ... and it happened. Alas ... it was long long time ago ... but nonetheless it happened and I was interviewed too :D
* Driving in the US ... yep ... have been driving for 8 years now.
* Sponsor for my parents' US visit.... I did everything from researching, paperwork to financing their trip
* Have 2 kids of the same sex. (this one was something I wished and wasn't in my control ... but I am glad it worked out. Though I had no preference to boys or girls ... I just wanted 2 kids of same sex)

My wishlist:

* To see both my daughters well settled and happy
* To release my very own music album.
* To be event Manager. (I have hosted / organised several parties and most of them have had wonderful feedback)
* To crack the code in the world of stocks and share ....
* Travel the world with my family ... may I also add with no financial constraints (BP. kids and parents)
* Own a house by the beach

Ah ... I need to come back to reality from my dreams and start working towards achieving those. Wish me luck people !

Test yourself

Source : Here

1) A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

2) If it takes five machines 5 minutes to make five widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?

3) In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of it?

All 3 right ??? If not, some consolation:
When researchers put the following three problems to 3400 students in the US, only 17 per cent got all three right
