[Webinar] Breakups are hard: How to maintain good relationships with former clients

The Client/Agency relationship is similar to any other relationship in life: they don’t always work out. A breakup could be due to a chemistry issue, unrealistic expectations, or maybe, the relationship has just run its course. Whatever the reason, a “conscious uncoupling” does not have to be painful. The world of PR is a small one, so chances are your paths will cross again. It’s important to remain on good terms with these “exes,” as they may talk to current partners or you might want to reconnect later on.

In this webinar, Paul Wilke, CEO of Upright Position Communications, shares personal industry experience that provides actionable insights into:

  • Avoiding a potential breakup scenario
  • Maintaining healthy relationships with past clients
  • Moving on from the breakup in a mutually beneficial way
  • Understanding and identifying problem signs in a working relationship that can be fixed
  • Identifying if you’re in an “It’s not you, it’s me” situation, or if it’s totally them
