Hi Heidi,

At one of the Chamber of commerce meetings I go to, there is a really flamboyant guy that always wears a really loud suit. I am not saying where a loud suit, but these are the things that get remembered in a short time frame.

Try and get the other person to go first in the speed talk. That way, you will know what they are all about, and you will be able to give specific examples based on their industry:

Say you are chatting with someone who does pest inspections. You let them go first and explain what they do etc.

You can then talk about similar examples of work you have done within the pest/building industry, about using animations to explain what they do to their audience, clever business card designs etc.

Hope this helps,

Above all else, have fun!
