Happy Friday everyone!
Ray Ruecker here with Connect 5000!
I left Thursday afternoon for San Francisco and returned Friday evening. A 31-hour trip.
I visited with an old client/contact who does outsourced fractional marketing for tech firms in the Bay area first.
We met up at Chef Chuy’s in Los Altos and had a nice dinner and Peking duck. When Oracle acquired Talari last November (public news), my friend and contact advocated to Oracle to keep my 3 reps assigned to them through the transition AND has referred me other business. We ate, caught up and got to know him better since my last in-person visit in September 2019.
The next morning I ubered to downtown San Francisco off 44th and Montgomery and met another client at her office and we grabbed delicious sushi nearby. When I was here last fall, I met with another contact from the client, but he’s no longer with the company and I had never met my existing contact in person. No agenda, just good old fashioned face time and building relationships.
How’s your fall so far, world? Any cool trips to share?
