How often have you seen someone, wanted to strike up a conversation with them, but didn’t know how? In a busy city like London, we run across loads of opportunities every day. But, how often do you seize these opportunities? What are you missing out on?! In today’s post, I break down for you how to talk to strangers, in 3 easy steps.

  1. Don’t think about it. Just GO! – If you let your mind take over, it ain’t happening.
  2. Be in their close proximity. In order to speak to someone, you must move to a location near them – you can’t start up a conversation with someone from across the room.
  3. Use a prop to start an open and ‘natural’ conversation.

Bonus – Do yourself a favour and only implement this with people who are likely to respond well, i.e. have open body language such as uncrossed arms, shoulder pointed outwards, and even better, have already made eye contact with you.
