BECOME THE DETECTIVE
As you arrive at the event/place of connection, capture and take in the surroundings on all senses.
Look around for visual signs that may help build the conversation, lie pictures, awards, desk items if it is someone’s home or place of work. If an event, notice who is talking to whom, signals that can lead you to who you need to speak to.
Once you have made the connection, use your listening skills to hone in on specific areas of interest, and powerful questions to get the person talking about themselves, to revel personal things you can build on now, and in the future. (Long term relationships is the true art of networking)
Before moving onto the next person, exchange business cards, and write down some personal points for the future.
