When faced with the choice between waiting in line or leaving, here’s a tip that works most of the time, to start an email conversation with the conference speaker.
The setup… Imagine you are attending a conference presentation. The workshop and the presenter were excellent.
It’s over. And a crowd of people form a line to talk to her. It looks to be at least 20 people long.
You want to ask the presenter a question. You have second thoughts. You have third thoughts about waiting in line.
Do you risk waiting in line and have her leave or do you just leave a bit let down?
Here’s a tip that works most of the time to start a conversation.
Email the speaker explaining 1 or 2:
- You attended the session and you have a question about the topic she covered. Unfortunately, the line to talk to her was very long and you couldn’t stay.
- You attended the session and you have a question about a topic she said would cover and she ran out of time. This option by far, gets more responses.
Keep mind: Keep your request short and to the point. Ask for websites, articles, studies, website links, etc. to help address your question.
