Thanks for the question Pauline – I have had many memorable first contacts with clients. Given the nature of Northern Ireland its hard not to know someone related to or known by the client. Sometimes though the meeting can take unexpected turns. Like the one where the discussion turned to hobbies and I mentioned music. The fact that I ended up tuning a guitar and singing a song for the client – during which their boss popped his head round the door and said hello for the first time. At that point it reminded me of the Bruce Lee quote – “Expect the Unexpected” – the mantra that IT staff should live by.
Needless to say the meeting went well and the client has remained an interesting one with never a dull meeting.
