I just got done watching Charlie Rose interview John Mack the Chairman of the Board at Morgan Stanley. I was very impressed with this man. He kept on talking about the importance of building a relationship with China before we do business with them. He suggests we go visit China, Brazil and Russia to build relationships with them. We should read books about their culture so we have a better understanding of their culture before we move in to do business. So I was reminded of the importance of relationship in business; especially the web business. I purchased a SitePoint book a few years back the discusses building relationships with business people. Perhaps going out for breakfast or meeting for lunch once a month... So my question to you, is, what can I do in order to build stronger relationships with business people?
