Agency producers help me out as I’m consulting with a friend who owns a regional prod co. Are you more likely to take an in person meeting or a zoom or phone call with a production company rep?

It’s really just timing. Is my schedule open and am I looking for new ideas and partners? Inspire me.

I like in person when I have the time. phone calls are kinda - meh. I'm at my desk and probably multitasking, I won't lie. you have my attention at a quick coffee meeting.

They should try to organize a screening at the agency but network ahead of time so they can get one on one time with producers and creative. Another thing is does the company have the reel/work that fits the level of polish an agency puts out? There are lots of mid-level production that I wouldn’t necessarily use for major brand work but for digital/social they could be a secret weapon.

Great insight. Work is good. But not top tier. So will be looking to be the secret weapon and cut thru clutter. Thanks for this!!

Thanks for this! At these in person meetings/ what’s the structure like? What do you get out of it/ how does it help you? Any elaboration would be helpful. Trying to help develop a new sales role for this colleague. New territory for them.

Phone. In person takes a ton of time. Def not zoom. Awkward and no reason for it

Thanks for this! Another question: what gets you to take a call or meeting if it’s a brand new company?? Is it work you see? Or that they pitch an approach/process that is new? Would love any feedback.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.

What's your organization's stance on surveys? I've been in the HR department of my organization for a year and a half, we've never sent any type of engagement, satisfaction, NPS, etc. survey to employees. I've just been made aware that our Executive team and our CEO are not a fan of employee surveys so that's why we don't do them. Is this...normal? Or is it dysfunctional as an HR department to not be doing surveys?

Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
