Bound to the home office, like many of you, too, I’ve experienced a different way of working and a different atmosphere of creating thoughts, new ideas, and concepts in the last weeks.
My highlight moments
My highlight moments during that time were three video conferences I had with colleagues from airlines (actually potential clients I virtually met for the first time). Colleagues from airlines spread worldwide: One from North America, one from South America, and one from Asia.
These meetings were different from most of the previous sessions I had. The reason for that, at least from my point of view, lies in the fact that it was clear to everybody that it was not about sales. Not about selling a service, a product, a whatsoever.
It was everything but not about sales!
For me, it was apparent that they were not in a position to buy at the moment, and for them, it was clear that I had no intention to sell something.
Based on that fact, the meetings were super-extremely straightforward, transparent, and ultra-fruitful (sorry for all the superlatives here, but that’s really how I experienced it).
It was about answering their questions regarding airline operations and KPIs and sharing the latest innovative thoughts with them. Personally, I could also gain lots of ideas and fresh views from these meetings.
Why I’m telling you all that?
I really loved the atmosphere of the meetings, the openness, and the results we jointly produced. That brought me to the idea to do that more frequently — voilá the “Tea with Me” concept was born.
Tea with Me — The idea behind
I’m offering two daily 30 minute slots in my calendar for tea time and an online session with me.
That means every day at 9:00 CEST (7:00 UTC) and 15:00 CEST (13:00 UTC), I’m thrilled to jam a 1-on-1 session.
Topics are entirely up to you. But, of course, a relation to airlines, airline operations, data, KPIs, or IT solutions are welcome and will definitely produce the most valuable output for both sides.
Besides, there are no limitations: It can be about doing Q&A, discussing innovations, future developments, getting my view, or whatever you have in mind.
Any hard pre-requisites? Not a single one! Let’s have fun, jam a session, create value, and drink tea.
I’m looking forward to drinking tea with you!
