A few weeks ago at the New Haven chamber networking Group I was trying to send a message to someone who wasn’t there that day. I was going to help them with an Apple device situation and I hadn’t heard from them. Their first name was known but not their last and I knew they worked for a bank. I asked Herb if he remembered their last name and he didn’t know. He did remember the bank’s name so I was narrowing the search down.
I assumed the person was on LinkedIN so I started a search armed with a first name and their employer’s name. I took a guess the person used Fort Wayne for their LinkedIN city since they been at our group several times. The search criteria was first name: Bob, company: First Source Bank, and city: Fort Wayne. This yielded the correct person and I sent them a invitation to connect on LI which they accepted. We began conversing through LI and set a time to meet later in the week. Thank You Herb and LinkedIN.
