Networking expert, Will Kintish, suggests three key tips to starting a conversation…
Be confident in yourself and consider what you have to say important. By acting confidently, you will encourage the other person to be more responsive.
Think of a compliment, whether it be about a presentation or about a persons’ car! No one can resist positive feedback.
Ask the person a question about themselves. This means you’re unlikely to have to do much talking, and that the person will feel like you cared about what they had to say.
