XDS Webinar Series – Edition 5: How to do Business Development During a Pandemic

We continue the XDS webinar series with those highly experienced in their roles discussing the important subject of maintaining your business development during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Description: As a result of concerns raised in a recent XDS webinar, we would like to explore and generate discussion on how to handle business development during this time whilst personal access to individuals is restricted and traditional avenues for business connections are limited.

Inside of this hour, we will ask our panel from both sides of the industry, how they are reaching out and seeking new business while providing tips and strategies to smaller service providers on how to approach and close potential clients during this time.
