Communication is important at every stage of the projects’ success, especially at the outset. A common noticed fear is jumping into the project before really getting to know each other (the project partners). It is important to connect to feel comfortable expressing your opinions, ideas and expectations.
Ideally partners’ professional skills can complement one another especially in areas of project piloting, marketing and sales, product development and launching or market up-scaling.
Personally, the Via Water café and site visit by the team were a great deal overcoming some of our project threats and weaknesses at the same time opening new opportunities.
