Man: so we have to do a presentation on a successful person at our next seminar.
Woman: Yes, do you have any ideas?
M:     Well, I've been on the internet and picked out a couple.
W:     OK- I've got some suggestions, too.
M:     Right, well, you start.
W:     OK... um, his name's Mahmoud Kaboor and he's a film maker in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
M:     Sounds good.
W:     Yes. He's the managing director of a very big film companay.
M:     So what made him successful?
W:     Apparently his uncle was a film student and because of that, he started making short films when he was only 16.
M:     That's quite young ... and were they good?
W:     Yup. He won a scholarship to go to Canada and study film, and that's how his career developed.
M:     Great. Um ... here's one of my suggestions. She was a ballet dancer - born in St Peterburg in Russia in 1881.
W:     Anna Pavlova. OK- why have you pikced her?
M:    Well, firstly, because her parents weren't waelth- they were every poor, in fact- and yet she still went to the School of Imerial Ballet at ten years of age.
W:     That's so young! Was she very talented?
M: Yes, she was, but she didn't follow the rules of ballet. She was very individual and did things that were different from other ballerinas at the time.
W:     Ah- and that's what made her stand out ...
M:     Yes.
W:     OK. I've got another woman- Marine Curie
M:     She's very famous. Was she Polish?
W:     Yes, born in 1867, but did you know that she was the first professor at the University of Paris and the first woman to win a Nobel Prize.
M:     Yes-  amazing!
W:     There were many brilliant secientists around when she was working.
M:     So why did she do better?
W:     Oher scientists couldn't get ahead of her because she sensibly publiched her ideas straight away.
M:     What a clever thing to do!
W:     Yeah-  everyone does it automatically these days, but all those years ago, people often didn't think about it.
W:     Great! Well, here's one more.
M:     OK- who is it?
W:     This is an African- American guy who worked as a chef in the 1950s. His name was George Crum.
M:     Not exactly- but wwithout him, we wouldn't have the potato chip. Or crisps, as the British call them. 
W:     Oh! 
M:     Yeah. Apprearently, he had a customer who was annoyed because his French were too fat and soft. So he sliced a new potato as thinly as he could and fried it until it was hard and crunchy. Added lots of salt ...
W:     ... and a new snack was created.
M:     Well, I think we've got some interesting people here ...
