For anyone who grew up in the 70’s/80’s, your word was gold. The days of writing sales deals on napkins are long gone. Eye contact, handshakes to seal mutual understanding and meaningful words that connected people – these were expected in most business engagements but have been replaced with Likes and digital documents.
