LearnEnglish Professionals INFLUENTIAL BUSINESS PEOPLE AUDIOSCRIPT David Summers, author of the recently published “Keys to Success” is being interviewed about his book on influential business people. David Summers = DS Interviewer: So what is it that makes a businessman or business woman influential? DS: Well, first we ought to think about what we mean by influential. Lots of business people enjoy success but relatively few become influential, really have an influence, on the people around them, on society, on the world - Interviewer. Ok, so who would you say were influential? What names come to mind? DS. Well, sometimes it isn’t the names that come to mind, sometimes it’s the product. Obviously we’ve got the big names - Bill Gates, Henry Ford, people like that. Sometimes the names are not familiar at all - like Sam Walton. Interviewer : Sam who? DS: Exactly! ( both laugh) Sam Walton was the man who perfected the idea of the discount store. The Wal-Mart stores are his. It’s the biggest chain of retailers in the world and in the States Wal-Mart employs more than 1.3 million people.
