The SIMPLEnetworking Tip is to find common ground. Networking small talk can be tricky and cumbersome. I have found great success in drawing up conversations around shared interests and commonalities. It could be a love for foods, cultures, languages or travel. It could be a taste for fashion, music, arts and entertainment. It could be a similar client, vendor, product or service. Identify the common link and be sure to relate it to your brand, business or expertise!
