How often do you ask for a referral?

On Wednesday I had to cancel my attendance at an evening event.
Something had come up which meant that I had to be at home.

I spoke to the organiser to apologise. Whilst chatting he asked if I knew someone who may be able to attend instead. He mentioned a couple of names of people going & I immediately thought of someone who would be an excellent fit.

He then spoke about some of the others going & if I might know some good introductions for a couple of specific projects. Again a couple of people came straight to mind.

By the end of the conversation we had generated 6 referrals!

How often do you get the opportunity to discuss referrals with trusted contacts?

More importantly how often do you take that opportunity?

Good Networking!
