I have made a deliberate effort to get to know the people around me even better in 2008 and today demonstrated just why it’s so important to take time to have a coffee and NOT discuss business with business contacts, every now and again.
I have known Paul for a couple of years and he is a close friend of someone I have known for several years and yet, only today, over a cup of coffee whilst waiting to meet with someone else, did I discover that he is an extremely talented photographer. What perfect timing as I currently need to have some professional photos taken!
My advice to everyone is to take 5 minutes out of each busy working day to have a non-business chat with every business contact you meet because you never know what you’ll discover … if nothing else it will strengthen and deepen your relationship and, if you are able to help them in any small way, it will give you a good feeling inside.
So, if you, like me, are in need of a talented photographer (based in Hertfordshire) then please contact Paul and tell him that Kaye says hello…
