Where wine is concerned, very important to do quality control. You can only be assured after several glasses that it passes. Otherwise, some one may accidentally buy the wrong bottle; we do not want this to happen. So this actually falls under the category of More Important TestingI did. Well, a good half bottle.
Nothing dramatic. The renewal offer letter and the amount they were going to charge me on-line were different so rang to say what's up.Do you have any particular tips, or did you just threaten to leave them?
Well, said meeting was yesterday, and it went really well. My nerves disappeared once in the meeting, and it was all very positive. They seemed impressed with quite a few of the ideas we presented about how we would want to approach running their study. Fingers crossed now until they give their feedback and tell us whether they want to use us.My hunch is that you will prep really well and the client will respond well to that. My experience is that current or potential clients can sniff out integrity behind a slightly nervous presentation just as well as they can sniff out BS behind one that’s overly polished.
You’ll be fine.
Was once sat alone in a meeting room, waiting nervously for the audience for a crucial presentation, when a colleague stuck his head in and said: "Isn't the moment before a presentation the most awful feeling ever?"I would like to think this has been an epiphany, and I will no longer spend the few weeks before such a meeting feeling physically sick - but I'm pretty sure I still will.
