Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

Check out my POV on the importance of #virtualleadership skills for a #marketing #agency to compete - to build their client roster and increase scope of work. WHY this is important: All external agency / client relationships are virtual – even if you are located in the same city - and especially if you are in different cities, states, or countries. And, clients continue to move work to their in-house agencies (closer in physical proximity) and cut down on agency travel budgets.

1. Create strong plans to Stay Top of Mind with clients and overcome #DistanceBias. - I teach a workshop on "Influencing Across Distance". One tip is to create a physical leave behind – put something physical in the workspace of your client that will trigger them to think of you throughout your day. It might be a photo, a poster, or even a stuffed animal with the logo of your firm!
2. Become a pro at Presenting Virtually - It's different than in person meetings! I give workshops on Leading Effective Virtual Meetings & Presentations. Don't underestimate the prep needed to ensure your ideas have impacted & are communicated strongly from a distance. (video is a must!)

Thanks for having me on your show Chase Gunnell and BluHorn Media Buying Software
