After you complete your meeting, your efforts in effective follow-up work will determine the value you receive from your One-on-One Business Meetings and HDAW.
Review with your personnel the results of each meeting. (You may even want to write a brief report of what was said and what action you and/or the manufacturer expect.) And, don’t forget to do the same with those suppliers you made contact with during the trade show.
Set up an action and follow-up plan for getting the most out of the information gathered.
There will be 20 35-minute meetings per team. The new MeetMax scheduling program will allow you to rank your selections in order of importance.
Don’t forget to request a minimum of 20 (and maximum of 30) manufacturers for each team. Even though you will only be scheduled with 20 meetings, this will help ensure your meetings are scheduled with the manufacturers you want to meet.
Make sure you adhere strictly to all the deadlines set out in the program to ensure that the final schedules come out in mid-December.
