In order to demonstrate to DoOrder tomorrow that we are worth being taken seriously, we must each have something to show for our week of effort in our respective areas. It would be silly for us to have no deeper comments than what we asked them last Wednesday, which means that we must arrive with enough of an idea to sustain a meaningful back-and-forth. Certainly, it would be improper for us to give a full presentation tomorrow, having completely finished the research and deliverables, but we should at least have made significant headway.
Meeting on Zoom, even just once, is irrefutably inferior to meeting in person. There is a level of connection that can not be achieved through this medium. That said, engaged, responsive, and patient behavior is the key in expressing solidarity and in garnering respect.
