Tip article for today

Here's the Tip Article for today:

Keep Your Eyes Open and Respond...

Have you experienced in a seminar crowd or meeting, where people linger around after the event and talk to one another about different issues that were covered during the presentations...

Someone in the audience might have said something to the speaker in a question and answer period and, afterward, you sought to get more information from that person.

Here's what happens:

You approach the participant who shared, but someone else is already talking with him or her. Politely you wait and try to attract attention but there is no response.  You approach a little further to try and catch his attention but he and his party are so engaged in their conversation that he ignores you completely.

Look, I've been in that situation many times and it is very frustrating -- especially if you are a busy person and just want to ask a quick question -- not talk all night !

Don't be one of those ignoramus.  When you have someone talking with you and another approaches to say something, immediately turn to that person seeking you and acknowledge him/her right away. Don't let them stand there. Let them in.

Your reply will just extend the discussion further to the interest of the group.

That's what these events are all about.  People getting together to discuss matters of interest.

Whether you are the speaker of the presentation or a participant from the audience who contributed to the event, just make sure to keep your eyes open and be ready to acknowledge the presence of another person seeking to speak to you.

Till next time, have a great and wonderfully successful week,
