And What I Think About It...
Guy Kawasaki has posted an interesting article: "The Art of Schmoozing II." He has ten tips from Susan RoAne for walking into a room and meeting people. RoAne is the author of How to Work a Room: Your Essential Guide to Savvy Socializing.
Ms. RoAne's ten suggestions are applicable to nearly any social event where you will be meeting people you don't know. I intend to take the list to Sunday School with me to discuss from the viewpoint of meeting and greeting visitors to church.
I especially liked the last suggestion:
Go everywhere with the intention of having fun. People want to be around the upbeat, fun, interesting, and interested person.
