I had my annual trip to catch up with my Sydney clients. It was a great couple of days full of meetings. I brought two new clients on board (one with two sites), had an old client invite back to work with them again and locked in a whole heap of work from my existing clients. From a business perspective it was well worth it.
It was also great to catch up with the people, many I’ve known for a decade now. I stayed at the lovely Radisson Blu where I had the choice of two beds (went with the one on the right) and wasn’t woken up at 7.00am by the sound of kids rummaging through Lego. I only had an hour or so free before heading back on the Tuesday and the weather had closed in so I took myself off for a walk up and down Pitt St to kill the time.
All of this was great but the personal highlight was getting to hand out a couple of business cards. I know, I know, but it’s such a rare event as all of my clients come through recommendations and quite often I don’t get to meet the people behind the phone and email until after the project launches. At the rate I get to give cards out I’m set with my current supply for another 250 years.
