Technology will kill meetings and networking as we know it!

Technology will kill meetings and networking as we know it!

Have you worried about how technology is affecting your business? You're not alone. The speed at which new social media programmes infiltrate our circle of friends is matched only by the speed at which new CRM tools claim to make our "personal" sales contact easier.

Technology will kill meetings and networking as we know it!

Just as The Move Master had suspected this is still very far from the truth. Face-to-face meetings and networking are the key components to closing business and building trust. The cornerstones to our business. 
Our views are supported by Crowne Plaza group who has performed its first global survey on this subject. They found that:

  • 81% of business men and women stated that face-to-face meetings are better for building long-term trust and ensuring strong client relationships. 
  • Nearly half (47%) of business men and woman surveyed believed they had lost a contract or client simply because they didn't have enough face-to-face meetings, which resulted in the estimated yearly revenue loss of 24% - a significant loss for any business
  • However, nearly two thirds (63%) reported that the number of virtual meetings they attended has increased in the past 5 - 10 years further demonstrating that the value of face-to-face meetings is being overlooked in favour of cost and time-saving technologies, such as video conferencing

Hazel Carter-Showell, Business psychologist and body language expert, said: 
“Although developments in technology allow business men and women to make achievements in meetings that would have been impossible a few years back, meeting face-to-face continues to bring significant benefits that are much harder to obtain through virtual channels. One of these benefits is building trust, which research has shown is behind many profitable companies. Trusted companies have higher morale, productivity, lower employee turnover and create deeper relationships with their customers”.
