Schmoozing today with my electrician and painter, and for way longer than I should have, I started to think about how people connect – even, and especially, people who don’t know one another. From that, I extrapolated a few common themes that are good to keep in mind when you need to connect with an audience you don’t know at all or very well.
Incorporate a few or all of these in your next presentation, and see how it feels. It worked for me with Shane and Matt today, we could’ve talked forever!
