Who do you want to connect with? Where do you want to go? What do you want to discover?
2016 is the Year of Connecting Globally. You can go anywhere, learn anything, and connect with anyone. The world is shifting rapidly and now more than ever, we can virtually step into a makeshift tent in Nepal, an Israeli military training camp, behind the TV cameras of international TV broadcasters and their make-up rooms… (I’ve done all of the above recently)
What’s even more amazing, is that you no longer have to simply watch, unable to respond (other than rant or cheer at the TV) but you can connect personally, interact, ask questions, and get airtime yourself. Tell your own story – broadcast yourself from wherever you are if you want to. I’ve been on Periscope for 5 months now (recorded on Katch.me) and have made some extraordinary connections online and offline since.
You can connect with people from all over the world, inviting them to your office, your favourite holiday spot or shopping centre or conference. Live Stream broadcasting is available for everyone with a smartphone now.
This takes “DO Talk To Strangers” to a whole new level. I’ve been broadcasting and interacting with people from countries ALL OVER the world. One platform that I’m just beginning to play with is Blab.im so I decided to go online on the weekend without prior notice and make myself available to talk to strangers and see who turned up. It was a pretty inspiring conversation with strangers and friends of friends, some people who knew me already. If you’d like to have a quick look at this conversation please view here
Who do you want to connect with more confidently in 2016? Don’t miss opportunites to connect because of hesitation. It’s all about the conversation in your head first. For practical tips and encouragement, make sure you’ve signed up for the free resources at the top of the home page or to the right of here – the audio with Janet Beckers interviewing me and asking all kinds of insightful questions to unpack the ASKING Model for How To Connect With Anyone, Anywhere is GOLD – then there’s the book, DO Talk To Strangers on the shop page and Connect With Confidence Online course
