Nós cumprimentamos pessoas de diferentes formas. Dependendo do clima nós usamos a linguagem formal ou informal. Para cumprimentar alguém de maneira formal quando chegar a algum lugar, nós tendemos a dizer: "good morning" (bom dia), "good afternoon" (boa tarde) ou "good evening" (boa noite). Quando nós estamos falando de maneira informal, para cumprimentar, costumamos usar "hi" (oi); "hello" (olá); "how are you" (como você está); "what's up" (e aí); "how are you today" (como você está hoje); "it's been such a long time" (faz tanto tempo), "long time no see" (há quanto tempo); "where you have been hiding" (por onde você tem andado) e "it's been ages since we last met" (faz séculos que eu não te vejo). - See more at: http://www.englishtown.com.br/community/channels/article.aspx?articleName=greetingsomeone#sthash.YMvNhEEm.dpuf

good morning folks

How are you guys doing?

I am André as you know

I appreciate working with people from the United States.
I have been to the US 3 times.

present perfect continuous verb tense
have/has + been + present participle
*action that started in the past
*duration of time


I have been working at company x for 2 years.


first of all I would like to thank you to this opportunity to share with you some improvements and activities done at company x

I already had the chance to meet some of you, but some don’t,

so I just want to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

I have been working at the company x for 5 months and had some previous experience with IT in other companies as well.

when I started at the company my first challenge was the ERP project.
the first stage had already been finished and ERP was already live.

my inicial participation was only helping with support materials and solving specific post implementation issues,

I prepared a project analysis to help the staff to manage better the scope and deadlines I also created a timeline and a process mapping for critical areas.

they are constantly sending us updates which is hard to manage

Upgrading the ERP was a topic discussed over many months and this was a critical issue that involved many people, resources and financial investment, being considered as an important project locally.

related to this presentation I developed a system update methodology to be used to maintain the system updated after the implementation

showing an example here follows some slides of CRM recently implemented.

some improvements were done on our inventory, we had a computer installed on the stock area to help the employees on their daily activities and implemented the new scanning system, which helped us to significantly reduce the time for the anual inventory from 3 to only one day. This was a huge success to us.


A lot was done during this year and I have many different subjects to present you, but I´ll just give you an overview of the main topics of improvements that I had the chance to participate with along these past 5 months.

our server room was in need an organization and it took about 3 days and best thing of this the cost totally free we didn’t`t spend any money for that

the result of this work was what we could do in a short term
and we all can analyse other projects to be developed in médium and long terms

paper box

again it was a result of a team work

our time is short and sorry for the rush, but feel free to contact me. Thanks for your time.

this is the end of the presentation
thank you very much
