What do you say after you say “hello”?
Before a cocktail party or networking event, do some homework. It’s so easy these days with the Internet. If it’s a company sponsored event find out what the company is up to regarding charity work, if there were any interesting new hires, and/or read the AGM keynote.
You should keep up with current news and plan about three things to talk about – everyone will be able to talk to you about the news. You can also talk about things everyone at the event has in common, for example, how they know the host, what they think of the food or the venue.
Good luck! If you have any questions please email me at Bonnie@speechscience.com, and I will be happy to respond as soon as possible. Also, you can give me a call at 416-323-3881/New York – 1-877-939-3881, and visit our website – www.speechscience.com.
I look forward to talking to you via, phone, Skype, e mail or even live.
“See” you soon,
