Nowadays, with various methods of communication and even the 'virtual boardroom', we are able to connect with individuals based all over the world, from all sorts of backgrounds at just the click of a button.
Our workforce and our clients are from more of a diverse background simply because everything is more accessible nowadays. A number of my clients often now hold final interviews over a 'go-to meeting' or 'skype' which allows them the flexibility to be based anywhere in the world.
I however believe the power of a face to face meeting can never be beaten.
The opportunity to sit in front of your customer, clients or work colleagues and interact face to face with them is by far superior to any interactive meeting.
What do you think?
But I’m convinced that the value of a handshake and a direct relationship has never been more important than it is today. There is no substitute, especially in business, for making connections personal.
