A client wanted to meet for a workshop – I live and work in Christchurch, they were up the top of the North Island. The question: where to meet?
Yesterday, we met half way. I flew to Auckland Airport, and they drove from their offices to Auckland Airport. We hired a meeting room at the airport for the day, talked through what needed to be discussed, concluded with next actions, and went our separate ways. They drove back to their city, and if I hadn’t arranged meetings in Auckland for Tuesday, I would have flown back to Christchurch.
It was a good “compromise” on location and travel burden – I recommend it for appropriate situations.
