Someone I missed seeing for a number of months and really enjoyed networking with just blipped on my screen.
So I sent him a message on LinkedIn to see how he was faring and what news he had in his business.
Better, he replied, let’s get coffee and catch up (face-to-face contact is always best, right?) Electronic connectivity works too, as you know I believe, but only part as well when you can also “press the flesh.”
We are scheduled for a coffee in a couple of weeks. I look forward to it and thank LinkedIn for enabling me to deepen the need to reconnect.
