I've had an inordinate amount of prospects come through lately from other countries, and they are all very nice people with better language skills than me (I only speak english and I have mad respect for bilingual people).
Sometimes it's hard to understand people over zoom; and if I don't understand what they're asking or saying I feel like a dick when I have to ask them to clarify a couple times throughout a call.
This isn't something new to me, but lately so many deals are with companies across seas so it's top of my mind.
What are your best tips to navigate this?
For context it's not just one language - I'm frequently meeting with organizations across like 4 different regions.
