Not my usually cup of tea, but I went to support a friend.
So I was just standing there waiting for hubby to meander back so we could leave.
I had talked with quite a few people already, but was just standing there when a gentleman came up and introduced himself.
Because of my hearing loss, it is difficult for me to hear people in that hard-surface type of setting.
I had to ask him to repeat his name. I explained my hearing issue. That launched us into a conversation about hearing aids. I was wearing mine, he was not wearing his.
But we had a nice chat and he even gave me a good stock tip. Well, actually he gave it to my husband thinking I wouldn't be interested. But I got to ask enough about it to satisfy my curiosity.
So who would think that a conversation could go from name to hearing aids to stock tips in just a couple minutes.
That's what I love about networking.
