Are you experiencing less attentiveness and manners during a face to face meeting? Do you leave feeling like the time could have been more productive? It seems that the more we connect on-line, the less we are connecting in person, both literally and figuratively. It might be time to brush up on a few tried and true techniques to help maximize your up close and personal business opportunities.

Eye it up and tell us how you see it.
