(F.S. – Budapest, Hungary) – In the beginning of the week we rolled the cube with the guys of my department, and it said: “Competitors can be friends too.”
We are trying hard to get into a new market segment for us, in which opportunities were created by a new law. We tendered at a potential client, which would have been a good reference for the future. Unfortunately we came only second as a competitor offered a lower price.
When the results were shared with us, I saw that the winner is an ex-colleague of mine, with whom I haven’t talked for a few years. Of course I have regretted that we have lost, but then I thought that it’s also an opportunity to get in touch with him, so I’ve written him an e-mail with congratulations and good luck for the engagement. Till now there is no response, but I don’t mind, I’ve done my part.
