A Simple Formula To Start A Conversation With Someone You Don't Know A Simple Formula To Start A Conversation With Someone You Don't Know Presentation Transcript

  • “Hey, give me your business card!”
  • People buy from people, they don’t buy from companies.
  • So it makes sense to get to know more people!
  • It can be hard starting a conversation with someone you don’t know …..
  • So start by using OAR-ation
  • Occupation
  • Ask: What do you do? • “How long have you been doing that?” • “That sounds interesting, tell me more” • “What does that entail?”
  • Association
  • Ask: How are you associated with this event? • “Are you a member here too?” • “Are you a regular attendee of these events?” • “Do you know the organizer?”
  • Recreation
  • Ask: What do you do in your down time? • “What do you have planned for the weekend?” • “Do you follow any particular sport?” • “Tell me about your hobbies”
  • Follow up
  • Don’t forget to follow up • No point in going if you end it there • Agree to follow up if they are receptive • Telephone to reconnect, don’t email
  • Then say Hello to someone else …
  • • Get out to more places! • Mix the locations up a little • Find some commonality • Use OAR-ation • And start with Hello  www.bluebanana.co.nz
