Hear that? I’d been summoned, that familiar contraption by my side hails me.

Pinged’ again.

I’d just been ‘messaged,’ ‘alerted,’ ‘distracted,’ with an enquiry through social media.

The diversion had come from Murray, he was wanting to know a little more of what ‘it’ was all about. How he might share in this referral network I was part of, the regular weekly business I and others look forward to each week.

The initial “conversation” went like this:

From Murray … HMU What’s it about?

Me … Who would you like to meet Murray?

Murray … WLTM? Certainly Prof. Alice Roberts.

Me … [?] Then, perhaps someone I know someone who may be able to introduce you. Would you like to work with Prof. Alice?

Murray … ROFL

Me … Sorry, don’t understand, just advise your intentions when you may be coming along Murray.

Murray … More ROFL

Murray … HMU L8R

Me … OK, thanks for the enquiry.

Me … ???

Pleased to say, Murray did eventually turn up for our midday meeting. A thoroughly likeable guy (with a sense of humour) who, apart from having great expertise on social media happened to be a professional from within the health industry. Murray is with us because he in business and looking to share, connect.

He also harboured ‘ambitions’ of meeting Prof. Alice Roberts of UK television fame and by the looks of the lively conversation during and after the meeting, he may be, just maybe, that lucky guy.

Isn’t it marvellous I thought, looking down at my ‘phone?

Wonderful what magic happens when we engage through ‘conversation …’

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. 30+ years experience in publishing and personal development is what I bring to individuals looking for advice, direction or simply an independent listening post. My passion is the person, hence my interest in structured networking and the magic that happens when like-minded people engage. engage, develop, grow ... with Go!
