At events, especially after completing a talk, number of people who network with me is high. It’s all good.
But time is limited. At one instance there were 3 persons from different organisations around me. All want to talk about their work, but all want to leave soon as well, because it was already past 530 pm. Traffic is insane in Colombo.
So this is what I did.
” How can I help you?”
The conversation moved from what we do to why we should connect. We all were questioning each other with specific questions and sooner we understood each other. It took 10 minutes and we knew how we can help each other.
Wonderful thing was with one person I found he could help me more than I could help him.
So, ” How can I help you?”
