From Coffee to Closing - Maximizing value from your professional one-to- one meetings
As business owners, meeting face-to-face with other like-minded business professionals can be an enjoyable part of our work that facilitates an exchange of ideas and potentially opens doors to new opportunities.
The question is “how you are using that time?” Your answer to this question can drastically change the results of your meetings, and can make this difference between time lost or amazing growth for you and your business!
Take time to educate yourself about the many beneficial techniques of face-to-face business meetings so that both parties benefit drastically. Vickie Wacek, Executive Director of BNI Vermont shares some best practices and insights into how to make the most out of your one-to-one meetings.
