OPTIONS FOR THE TRIP to Russia and Client Meetings :
OPTION 3: “Step by Step – Sequentially”
Time/schedule is unknown as of now and important key milestones may be missed and the various opportunities may have to be “rebuilt” from scratch with the Clients.
Logical sequential progress and onboarding process and development of the team
Change of priorities as Rob onboards
Delay as per the expected timeline
WHAT IT IMPLIES:
let Rob setup the meetings and Conrad, Simon and Andrei to support Rob once he is part of the team
get Rob onboard
Cancel the client meetings as per the proposed Agenda.
Option 2: “ Do things logically but in parallel – WASTE NO TIME”
Meetings are delayed by a reasonable time (Russian clients do this all the time).
RM joins in the position as expected and represents the correct face to the clients at the meetings.
Delay, potential issue with Client's calendars
WHAT IT IMPLIES
Delay the trip by a week (or reasonable time).
Speed up the offer/contract preparation finalise the negotiations with Hatch and RM.
OPTION 1: Full steam ahead – Believe that all will be OK!”
Loss of face in terms of the clients to whom you are introducing Rob.
Pierre’s comment was that I would then be remunerated for the time and cost of the trip. But is there sense of me being part of this trip then if the offer to me will not materialise?
the issue of Rob’s position is unconfirmed as no offer or draft contract has been put in place.
Rob is introduced in positive hopefulness that all will be ok…
All follows the "plan" - .timelines are known
WHAT IT IMPLIES
– introduce Rob as if he is part of the team and the employment contract is in place, etc:
confirm the meetings with clients and the team
As per the agenda and plan rev 3 sent by Conrad
