Build Your Dream Networking Q&A: The Icebreaker

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

Question: Any good “ice breaker examples” to introduce yourself to a new person?

Here are my tips:

  • Think “how do I invite a conversation” vs what’s my one-line all purpose event introduction.
  • Keep it simple and friendly. When I think about the open networking portion of a recent event, asking a simple opener such as “great turnout for today’s lunch, what attracted you to particular event?” would easily get the conversation started.
  • Be a good listener. Observe and survey the social dynamic before jumping in. Often we achieve the best networking by contributing our undivided attention.
