How to Wine and Dine (Part 2)

Impressing clients, co-workers and the Big Boss

Prospective clients

For most people, wining and dining professionals has more to do with wooing and maintaining client relationships than anything else. When you are on the prowl for a new client it’s important to impress them. They need to at least think you are successful, but they also want to know that you’re not going to be wasting their money.

Cautious optimism should rule the day. A nice restaurant is in order, preferably one that can be comfortably called high-end while not breaking the bank, perhaps a very fine Chinese or Mexican joint, which has the added bonus of not exactly being the most wine-friendly cuisine, so you can opt for high-end beers instead. It’s a perfect plan that allows you to give the impression of being top-of-the-line while paying middle-of-the-road prices. Now that sounds enticing to me. What were you selling again?

    We are supposed to schmooze our kids friends parents in order to get them into exclusive schools or employment?. Greg, you must live on Mars and I must live on Venus, or both, but these are kids. Let them grow up themselves, with a little autonomy.

    And go enjoy a nice bottle of wine with friends while your kids are enjoying the usual over organized extra-curricular activities that kids do today.

    When I read the title, "Your children’s friends’ parents" , I was thinking, older children and their friends' parents, teenagers. It's nice to know the character of the friends your child has. What better way to find out than to lubricate the parents with a bottle of wine. The acorn doesn't fall too far from the oak.
