Bookings and payments

We will remind all delegates of this date and the closing date of the scheduler, nearer the time.

One to One meetings are the key to the building and strengthening of relationships between members. Such meetings put you in a position to learn more about an individual in 20 minutes than months of emails or phone calls ever could.

Preparation for One to One meetings

  1. Business cards (minimum 150)
  2. Company brochures (30-35)
  3. Information regarding the services you offer and where you operate (perhaps in an electronic presentation)
  4. Statistics about your company. E.g. Number of shipments from/to
  5. In addition to the above, prepare the meeting. Think about why you are having the meeting, what you want to know about the others and vice versa.
Following the above steps will ensure that each meeting is profitable for both parties.
