Key Takeaways:

The decline of face-to-face meetings: Has the rise of hybrid working made people more lazy? With video platforms becoming much more common use for meetings, business professionals are making less effort to meet face-to-face.

Relationship building: Meeting in person allows for the building of stronger relationships with clients, which can be invaluable for long-term success in business.

Trust and connection: Face-to-face meetings foster trust and connection through non-verbal cues like body language and eye contact, which are difficult to replicate in virtual settings.

Professional development: Participating in face-to-face meetings provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, including skill development in areas such as relationship building and management.

Decision making: Real-time, face-to-face discussions facilitate quicker decision-making processes by enabling immediate feedback, and clarification of concerns.

Cultural understanding: Meeting in person provides opportunities to better understand individual business cultures, and customs, which can help better satisfy client needs.
