We used it years ago when I was in public relations for AT&T, and several of us might be attending the same dinner meeting or conference.
We might arrive together; however, we would then split up and reconvene on the way home or back in the office. We touched bases in aggregate with far more people than each of us could ever have successfully connected with solo. Plus our confabs gave us the opportunity to review networking outcomes.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll examine this method in more depth so that hopefully you, too, can benefit from it.
