Going to meetings - Best practices for meeting customers and investors

THE SESSION WILL START AT 17:00

There's no second chance for a first impression. Unlike ghost stories - Cliches exist because they are true.
Meetings are capsules of human interaction - and human interaction is what makes a deal. In other words - people buy from people. First meetings are critical at establishing a relationship, and getting ready takes some training. There's much more to meetings then just knowing how to tell your story.

In this down to earth session about how to be best prepared for first meetings, i'll cover issues such as:
Why prepare at all?
How to set your goals?
What should you study in advance?
What to look for before, during and after the meeting?
What to focus on, and what not to focus on?
and more.

If you've ever left a meeting with a feeling that you could have done a better job - it's probably true.

    Nice presentation, but little in terms of relevance to investor meetings.
    Maybe tune the meetup title for next time.

    Are all your meetups in Hebrew

    The Subject of this Meetup is

    Best practices for meeting customers and investors

    Surely a meetup for meeting customers in Israel for the Israeli Market would be ok in Hebrew

    However if most of your members are trying to break into the global market to interact with customers and especially inverstors - the universal language is English

      Hello Maurice, thank you for your comment. I agree with your statement about our audience, but I'm sure that the methods and practices Tal will teach in Hebrew will be relevant even if the target market is located in the US. Since most of our audience prefer Hebrew , we usually go for Hebrew. I promise that the next session will be English :)
