How to break into a conversation at a network meeting

How to break into a conversation at a network meeting | Business Tips | Scoop.it

One of the most difficult things you’ll ever do is walk up to an unknown person and strike up a conversation. At least, that’s what you might think. However, if it’s one person, it’s by far the easier configurations to start up a conversation with. They are on their own probably because they feel slightly uncomfortable or don’t know any of the new faces and so, by you approaching them not only will that be welcoming, but the person will appreciate and remember you for the extra effort you put in by making them feel at ease.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 15, 2:22 AM

 

The internet is a far more dangerous environment than most small business owners realise, and it is becoming more so, by the day. Obviously, most small business people are not IT experts, and many have limited understanding of the dangers they face from cyber attacks and other forms of online threats. This excellent guide should prove valuable to you if you fall within this category.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, July 15, 5:41 AM
The internet is a far more dangerous area than owners of IT businesses will realise, and thus, according to this article, Cybersecurity needs to be addressed seriously! The virtual world has backdoors to a more dangerous and murky grey area where virtual cyber trolls are on the prowl!
