Belgium, the Netherlands, and Paris in just 3 days and 2 nights!
What an incredible journey, Alhamdulillah. My two best friends and I covered a distance of 1200 miles in just 3 days! During this trip, I had the opportunity to visit numerous companies, both small and large. Some were already our partners, while others had potential for future collaboration.
The trip was undoubtedly exhausting, but the value of face-to-face visits, handshakes, and hugs cannot be overstated. These personal connections I am building will endure a lifetime, Insha'Allah. Having strong business partners in different countries elevates your business to new heights. They support cultural differences, translations, and, particularly in light of Brexit, having European partners has become even more crucial.
I would greatly appreciate any advice you have on building business relationships.
I cannot express enough gratitude to my friends. They enabled me to plan and make calls on the road while the driving was taken care of. It was truly wonderful to strengthen our friendship, which spans over 30 years while creating more incredible memories together!
