You won't get a single point if you aren't in the seat. So you're just wasting money if I understand what you are doing correctly

Well, thanks for the assumption, McK1. But here's OP's comment, restated more clearly and with 50 characters to spare: "I'm on an international project. I don't *have* to fly home, but I'm considering doing it anyway because it'll help me make diamond. What should I do?"

Amex corporate green card or CSR? I’m not seeing many benefits to the Amex and I’m wondering whether I should just stop paying the annual fee and apply for CSR instead and get reimbursed for business expenses from that card. Considering I can only put business reimbursable expenses on the Amex, it’s not accumulating points very fast. Would I be better off consolidating my points on CSR? Amex platinum doesn’t seem like the right move for me right now.

This is about internal reviews. The one that happens before client presentation. In my experience, these reviews have become very tasking over the last few years. Everyone is riding on assumptions. Biases trickle in. “Hey what about my idea?” is often thrown in. It maybe a thing in my agency. But if its happening at your place as well, how do you guys tackle it? It often happens that the client refers to the lack of idea that dies in these internal reviews. Any words of wisdom? Any insights?
