Chapter 123 Adina held a small leather bag and walked into Daugherty Corporation. The people around her cast a strange glance at her. “Ms. Adina has just gotten a share of Daugherty Corporation, but she’s going to be kicked out of the Board of Directors now. What a poor lady.” “She’s not poor. She spoke arrogantly without thinking about the situation, so it’s just backfiring on her now.” “It looks like Ms. Dew is more suited to manage the company. Ms. Adina should just be somewhere else where she’s meant to be.” “Did you forget that Ms. Dew ruined the tender project yesterday?” Adina pretended as if she did not hear the murmurs.
She walked into the elevator and headed to the meeting room on the top floor.
She stood in front of the meeting room and glanced around. Great, everyone was there.
The moment she took a step in with her high heels, Mr. Lawson sneered. “Adina, you didn’t secure the contract with Boyd Corporation, so you don’t have the qualification to attend the shareholders’ meeting.”
Mr. Porter nodded. “We’re having an internal meeting today. Please leave, Adina.” “You suggested the bet, and since you’ve lost, you should admit to it,” Aaron said coldly. “Get
Adina had spoken firmly the other day, which made him think this daughter of his could really secure the Boyd Corporation project.
Yet, this morning, everyone said that Boyd Corporation had collaborated with the Jones family.
He should have known that Adina was useless. How could she convince Boyd Corporation’s person-in-charge?
He should not have such high expectations of his daughter!
“Dad, no matter what, Adina is still a shareholder of the company. It’s really not suitable to kick her out.” Dew smiled and said, “She has 25% of shares, so it should be fine for her to be the manager of the Sales Department, right?”
She sounded gentle, but her words were filled with evil intent.
As soon as she spoke, the shareholders in the meeting room burst into a ruckus. “The position of Sales Manager is very important. Not everyone can hold it!”
“The Sales Department is in charge of getting big clients for the company. If she joins the department, I guess all of Daugherty Corporation’s clients will be scared away.” “In short, I don’t agree with her joining the Sales Department.” Everyone nodded at the same time, and their attitude was clear.
Dew curled her lips.
She had been unlucky for so many days, and there was finally great news.
She paced back and forth in the office a few times before she pursed her lips and said, “It’s not appropriate for me to handle this personally. You need to attend the dinner alone. Bear in mind that you have to persuade Mr. Arison to turn down the collaboration with Daugherty Corporation!”
“Ms. Daugherty, I’ll do my best. Please don’t worry.”
Dew’s assistant then calmly attended the appointment.
Dew waited for her news the entire night. At 9.00 pm, her assistant called her, “Ms. Daugherty, I’ve spoken to Mr. Arison. He said Boyd Corporation plans to collaborate with the Jones family, and they never considered Daugherty Corporation. Ms. Adina Daugherty has lost the bet, and she will never be able to join the Board of Directors. You can rest early.” “You’ve done a great job. I’ll transfer the money to your bank account tomorrow.”
After Dew hung up, she curled the corners of her lips.
Kicking Adina out of the Board of Directors was just the first step. Next, she would slowly get back the shares from Adina.
The next morning, Dew went to the company in good spirits. It was the third day of the bet. The Board of Directors’ meeting was special today, and it was very lively in front of the meeting room.
Some people with insider news had spread it around.
“I heard that Boyd Corporation signed the contract with the Jones family.”
“I told you Boyd Corporation wouldn’t collaborate with Daugherty Corporation. Only Ms. Adina Daugherty dares to have such a wilful dream!”
