It will be alright on the night - Maybe?

How many times have you said this to yourself while preparing for a meeting?

It will be alright on the night (or day).

You have business meetings to attend in the hope of winning new business, seeking support or investment, or providing guidance and encouragement to your team.

Will you get another chance to put things right? Probably not, as everyone else is also busy, busy, busy, working on stuff that takes up their valuable time.

KPI:

The inspirational leaders are the ones who identify which are their key priorities and prepare for a successful outcome, having earlier decided what their measure of success is.

Action:

It’s always helpful to have another person to bounce ideas off and get positive feedback.

I have Sandra Maguire, who supports me in editing my articles and uploading them to the web, LinkedIn and Irish Tech News. I have over 110 articles published thanks to Sandra’s attention to detail and determination to ensure that I meet my publishing deadlines.
