I work as an account manager, I was attending the first meeting with a new client signed with our agency.
I entered the room with the business development manager and greeted the client with a casual handshake and a small intro.
Client: (Not looking at me, asking the BDM) Is this the person who will manage my account?
Business Development Manager: Yes, she’s one of our best!
Client: well, that’s a problem.
He wasn’t joking. He didn’t explain himself, but he did not look at me or any other woman in the meeting the entire time.
