I have been out mingling on behalf of the company where I work. I have just met a young lady and understood one of her needs. She really likes going to the opera, but has not had the time to go there in several months. Now I am back at the office with an idea of who I want to connect her with.
My friend Allister can meet up with her here on the island, that will save her the time of travelling in to the mainland where the opera lies. He can share some of his knowledge about opera‚ acoustics and voice control. This might increase her appreciation the next time she goes to the opera. If they get along well, maybe he will sing a little opera for her…
The Email I write to them goes a little like this:
Hi Miss Mingle and Allister,
The two of you have similar interests in Opera. You should meet. You can help each other:
- Miss Mingle you can help Allister with ….
- Allister you can help Miss Mingle by sharing some of your knowledge about opera‚ acoustics and voice control.
All the best,
Tasks of the Hour:
- Write an email like this with your own words. You may use it as a template.
- Use the template to write an email to connect two people you know. Keep it short and sweet.
