CEO of Entranet
So, let’s suppose that you just convinced the Director of a
huge company to give you a shot and present your product to him and his stuff!
Before you go… before you do anything else, prepare.
Who are the people that you will meet?
What is their position in the company?
Who is the real boss?
Which University did he go to?
Does he play tennis? Or maybe basketball?
Does he smoke?
How does he negotiate?
How is this company with their payments?
Check out the latest news for this company and the whole
industry in general.
Also, pay attention to the timing issue.
Is this a good time for them?
Is this the time that they will set up their budget or did
they spent it all for this year and you simply go there for social purposes?

Your next job is to find out the place of the meeting.

Can you connect it to your laptop or should you have a USB
What if you have a Mac?
Do they have an HDMI connection or should you have with you

Well, I cannot stress this point enough.
The great preparation is of huge importance for anybody,
even for athletes!
