Here are 3 basic tips to help you get the most out of a SpeedCoffee event.
- Give the benefit of doubt
As you rotate from person to person, resist the temptation to judge and reject
in a hurry. You may feel the urge to compare people and quickly reject the one you ”like less”. Remember, once you mark NO for a person you will never get their contact info. We recommend that you keep an open mind. When you mark someone YES you’re not saying you want to marry the person. You’re merely keeping your options open. You can always decline them later. A person who may not appear very charismatic at the event may later turn out to be The One. Here’s a good rule of thumb : If you like somebody even a little, mark them YES.
- Ask interesting questions
Have some questions ready. The worst thing that could happen is you have nothing to talk about. But avoid controversial topics like politics or religion. Best to stick with light and feel-good topics. Download our free eBook that contains 25 great conversation starters and other tips.
Smile when you interact with people. People who smile appear friendly and approachable. Even if you don’t feel like it, a fake smile is better than no smile.
And here’s a quick physiology fact : when you force a fake smile on the outside,
you feel like genuinely smiling on the inside. It’s true, try it right now. See?
