On several occasions, I have had to attend networking or professional events where I didn't know a single person. If, like me, you cringe at the thought of starting conversations with strangers 😬

Here are 9 "relatively painless" conversations starters.

1. What did you think about [insert speaker here]?

2. I can't believe the great turnout today, is this your first time at this event.

3. I see you work at [company]. Nice to meet you, I am [Name] and I am with [company name].

4. What has been your favourite session so far?
5. I don't know many people here, so I hope you don't mind if I introduce myself.

6. “Mind if I join you?” How do you all know each other?

7. Hi, I'm [Name]. I don't believe we've met yet, I like the question you asked during the Q&A.
8. Hi, I saw you on the speaker's list and look forward to hearing you talk later.

9. I can't believe how fast the first session went, how are you finding the event so far?

Which ones did I miss?
