Kevin Willett wants to know where you met for the first time.
Three times in the last two weeks I have been in an awkward situation. While I was out and about, someone has come up to me and enthusiastically greeted me “Hi Kevin! How are you doing?” I had no idea who these people were. One lady in particular, was disappointed I didn’t remember her. In my defense, I hadn’t seen her in ten years. I’m supposed to know everybody because I’m the Networking Guy right? Well, if you haven’t been to an event in ten years, I should get a pass. Another guy said hi to me and I asked him to refresh my memory as to how we met? He said we had never met, he just saw my picture in the paper recently. I think I get a pass on that one too. But seriously if you are out and approach somebody you know, if they look puzzled, help them out. Let them know how you know each other! Don’t be offended. It’s not personal. It could be the re-start of a great friendship!
