Such a fun meme going viral right now!

Hmm, let me try this out, using the example of introducing myself to someone I am being referred to by an existing client, where they are making the introduction as they feel that person may be someone who could benefit from working with me.

“Hello. {polite greeting} My name is Tom McCallum. {name}

My client and your friend suggested we meet up as they feel you are an amazing leader who is hungry to get to the next level. {relevant personal link}

I only work with such people. Let’s talk bravery. {manage expectations}”

Challenging, perhaps, though a little less so than” you killed my father, prepare to die!

Hey, it is Friday and I’ll take any excuse to gratuitously reference one of my all-time favourite movies :)

There is a serious point here though, I love the simplicity of the four-step process.

How do you introduce yourself?
