“What did you learn through the process? In year 2? In year 4? In year 6? How can you apply that to the next project?” –Matthew Slotwinski
When you don’t land the project, what is your first step away? Is it learning from the process? Is it getting prepared for the next opportunity? There could be great insight waiting in what seems to be failures.
On this episode, Faye Davis talks with Matthew Slotwinski about the journey of long projects and what to do if you don’t land them in the end. At Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership, Matthew’s team is well versed in 2-5 year projects – projects that, by nature, take a long time to come to fruition and have a lot of moving parts. Sometimes you work on a project for a few years, and still don’t get the deal. Today, we talk about what lessons you can learn and what questions to ask to grow from the experience. These actions spur us on to better work for the next business in the pipeline.
Matthew is one of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers and listening to his insight, it is easy to see why! Community partnerships are such a key role in the work we do as economic developers, and we get to hear just how impactful they can be. When we row the boat in the same direction, things tend to flow smoother.
