Another tip is to be compassionate and socially aware. Sometimes the other person doesn't seem to want to end the conversation because THEY don't know how.

OR, they don't know anyone and you were the first soul they felt comfortable talking to. Ask if they know a lot of people there. If they don't, introduce them to someone you know and THEN excuse yourself.

Beth, thanks for those excellent suggestions. I love the idea of introducing the other person. Brilliant and thoughtful.



Beth's suggestion to give yourself an out is excellent! Thanks for the idea. Lynn, these are great reminders and suggestions. I'll be including them the next time I'm preparing staff members to network at events.
