On June 5th afternoon, International class gave a report about the achievement of lemonade selling. In the report, we were really glad to invite Mars
from Class 25 to let his mother to give us advice.
We had two aims in this activity, first is to get the fund for Dragon boat festival, second is to make student’s high school life colorful, improve students’
capability. In the report, we made video and power point and let some students who didn’t know about this activity get to know the preparation, process
and the result. We held this activity for three days and the pure profit is 312 RMB, which is a great performance for us who only hold this kind of activity
for one time.
After the report, we were appreciate that Mars’s mother Ms.Cui give us some advice. Ms.Cui, as a business woman who got great success in real estate,
gave us some very useful advice. There were two parts of the speech. The first part is the comment about our selling; the second part is the explaining
of some knowledge. In her comment, Ms.Cui praised our cooperation and creative idea, but she pointed put our drawback—our division of labor was not clear and the preparation is not good enough, which made our spot kind of messy. In the second part, Ms.Cui taught us about
Return on Investment (ROI). ROI is the profit/cost*100%. She told us that many companies us this to calculate the achievement and some of them upgrade
the data every day. She gave us the ROI of our selling—
it is 121.3%. She asked some students is it was a good performance, but most of the students think it was not a really good achievement. Ms.Cui told us,
actually, that was a really good performance, normal factories can only achieve 50%-60%, even her company can’t achieve this achievement. After hearing this, we were all surprised and satisfied because we got returning of our effort.
This activity makes our experience colorful and improve our skills of organizing and selling, although there are still some drawbacks of our performance,
we will do better in the future.
