Communication Tip #48
You are at a networking event and want to end a conversation and talk to someone else. Here is a professional and positive way do that: “I enjoyed catching up with you / meeting you and especially appreciate learning about______. I look forward to connecting with you again.”
Summarizing a point the other person made not only honors that person, it shows you were laser focused and found what the person said valuable.
This is one of several advanced networking tips I’ll be sharing at “Networking 201″ on March 20th. The Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce’s Lunch and Learn begins at 11:30 and lunch is provided. Contact the Chamber for reservations.
If you are in the area, I’d love to see you there!
