As I pull together all the inspiring bits and pieces that make up the new book Do Talk To Strangers – How To Connect Anywhere With Anyone, I’m pulling out pieces for presentations. There’s some content that is particularly useful to share with business leaders, entrepreneurs and difference-makers who know they need and want to connect more confidently in their everyday. I’m co-hosting an event soon where I’ll be sharing for the business community. Check this page for details – www.kerriephipps.com/events/
One of the stand-out moments of connection occurred in a split second when one of the countless photographers in action as we marched past responded quickly when I asked “Do you have a card?” Neither of us had a card, but he asked for my number so he could text me.

So today’s connecting tip is “If you want to connect, never mind if there’s barely time! Swap details anyway and see if the connection goes somewhere!
