3 Easy Ways to Impress American Clients

When you attend a meeting do you know that you’re responsible for the outcome of that meeting? 

A corporate coach based in the US helps us to understand the importance of meetings in the US business place. A few tips from the video are:
  • Respond in a timely way (within a few hours to a day) to each meeting request. If you are unable to come, let them know. 
  • Prepare – How can you contribute to the meeting? Prepare a few points you can respond to or talk about. 
  • When do you show up? Do not show up at the exact time or after the time. Come at least 5-10 minutes early.          
Remember every meeting is an opportunity to showcase your work and your expertise. 

Unfortunately, the video that was originally showcased here is no longer available.
Jennifer Kumar coaches Indians on how to prepare for meetings, speak up, take initiative, contribute and build relationships with their US customers or clients in a culturally and professionally appropriate way. Contact her to begin coaching today.
