What time should I call?

A MD responded to my email and told me to just give them a call next week,without stating a day or time.

In my initial email I stated that I was free most days and I asked him which times were most convenient for him.

I didn't want to have to ask again

So when should I give them a call?

6 am on Monday so they can start off the week on a high note.

In all seriousness, just email them dude. Send them a list of times/dates that you think would work for them and work for you and see what he says.

Misread post ignore that. I'd just email back and say how about x time, or you can just call in the morning and leave a message saying call back whenever

Give them a broad range of times which you'll be free on i.e. "I'm free every day next week from 10am onwards", and then follow up with something like "Does 2pm Monday work for you?". You suggest a time so you're not pussyfooting around and being indecisive, whilst remaining as open as possible in case he's busy.

Assuming you've already got his number, then just be decisive and reply saying thanks, and that you'll call him at X on Y day. Call him at exactly that time.
