22 火 Lesson14 そのまま待つように頼む

I appreciate your effort, Andrew.
Do you think it’s worth organizing this kind of event more often?
Definitely. Consumers use national holidays as an excuse to celebrate
and shop online.
Right. In my view, people are increasingly looking for an experience
in addition to a price discount. What do you think?
I couldn’t agree more. Of course. Price remains the top priority. But people want some exciting too.
Oh, sorry, Andrew. But could you please hold on a moment. James, my boss, wants to speak with me briefly.
Sure, no problem.

When I want someone to know that I absolutely agree and I support them, I like to use this phrase.
I think especially in a meeting situation where someone has brought up a point which I support, I might follow with this phrase.
