As Robyn sums up so well in this week’s DPM videocast,
Clients can be really scary.
If you’re looking for ways to manage client relationships with more confidence, this quick video up a few of our top tips for building strong client relationships. We’ve had our fair share of tricky client relationships, and we know firsthand the stress it can cause when your client relationships start going South.
We talk about:
- How to use ice breakers in client conversations
- The key to an authentic and trusting relationship with clients
- The importance of a communication plan
- Managing expectations—how you can avoid over-promising and under-delivering
- What information to share—and not share—with clients
