Good one, Rich. You've hinted on a very important downside to meetings. Quite often they don't produce the desired outcome and a sequence of meetings lingers on. It's also important to realize when a meeting won't be effective and may not be a bad idea to just put an end to them and move on with other projects/clients.

Face-to-face meetings and B2B
TaimoorZ   11/27/2012 4:51:53 PM

Interesting post, George. I think when it comes to B2B, face-to-face meetings have an enormous value. What one small meeting can achieve, several exchange of emails, phone calls and Skype calls can't. Especially when it comes to dealing with a client for the first time, these meetings become even more valuable.
