Mutual trust and respect is at the heart of every good client/provider relationship. In this webinar public relations consultant Jacquie Walters talks with one of her business’ foundation clients, Pic’s Peanut Butter owner and founder Pic Picot, about how to build and sustain a good client relationship. Jacquie and Pic have worked together since 2013. During that time the Pic’s Peanut Butter business has grown exponentially.
Pic will bring his characteristic humour to the discussion which will traverse topics including building trust, fast growth, matching internal and external reputation, difficult conversations and how to have them, and friendship in the client relationship.
