Hi <<First Name>>,
I've started this conversation over in The Networking Retreat Facebook Group. If you're not already a member in there, you'll be very welcome.
Sometimes you just have to be patient. Your prospect's agenda is different to yours.
I've just had a LinkedIn message from someone I met in mid 2015. At the time we communicated for a couple of months after we met, a workshop with me training his team was going to happen imminently, a fee was agreed, a venue was agreed. And then it went quiet. Emails went unanswered and if I phoned the call just rang out.
This guy works for a pretty major corporate. Turns out things changed in his world and, for twelve months or so I just slipped massively down his list of priorities.
And then tonight he sent me a LinkedIn message, apologising and wanting to bring our stuff back up the agenda again.
Sometimes you just have to be patient and my experience is that the bigger the organisation, the more patient you might need to be.
Make sure you stay visible, make sure there is always an easy route to you, make sure that you never slam the door.
Please do keep me in touch with your networking successes and challenges. I'm booking a load of networking events right now, so shall make sure I publish a list of them somewhere, and get some 121s booked up.
Thank you, as always, for taking the time to read my Emails, I know how busy you are.
