“Whenever I am at conferences, networking events, dinners, etc., and I meet someone, I will ‘run to the bathroom’, pull out my iPhone, and look up the person or people I’ve just met to get background details and even look for potential people we both may know. I then return to the conversation armed with this information and can subtly drop names and weave in data points to make the conversation that much warmer. Already, I have witnessed a big increase in the effect of my networking at my events.”
