Face-to-Face vs Electronic Meetings
This morning, while waiting in the queue before going on the air with Jim Blasingame, the Small Business Advocate, I listened to the tail end of his conversation with Christina Cavanagh. They were talking about how electronic meetings, even videoconferencing are no replacement for face-to-face meetings. Such meetings are a barrier to establishing those personal relationships so critical to business success.
What starts out as a daunting burden and time drain (2 hours a night on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 4 hours on Saturday mornings) turns into something to look forward to. After the class is over, people miss the sessions. They are fun.
