Is That A Meeting Anyone Really Wants To Attend?

I wrote a piece at Against the Grain on ways that librarians can ensure positive and productive results when meeting with salespeople.

I have always advised my library clients to set aside a portion of the week devoted to returning calls and letting all the salespeople who want to do business with the library know that the best time to call is at a certain time on a specific day of the week.  Moreover, it is just a good business practice to advise them also that any calls received outside of that window of opportunity will not be dealt with immediately.  This procedure puts everyone on the same page and avoids dangling conversations.

You can read the entire article at the Against the Grain website.

I would like to recommend Michael Gruenberg to your organization. I have known Mike for over 30 years.  He worked for Disclosure, a company I owned from 1977-1987, in increasingly significant sales positions., and then again for my company ProQuest for the last six years.

Mike is knowledgeable, personable, and a self-starter. He gets things done, requires minimal supervision, has a proven track record of consistently exceeding his quotas, and his customers love him.  He is a man of integrity and intelligence.

I recommend Mike highly; he would be a valuable asset to your organization.
