‘How can I create a good impression?’ Look the other person in the eye and get them talking by asking open questions! ‘How?’, ‘Which?’ and ‘Why?’ are all great openers. Be interested before being interesting! Then LISTEN to the answers! When they talk, you learn. You talk less with less risk of being boring. They have a good time which they associate with you. Listening also gives you an opportunity to talk about yourself in a way that’s relevant to the other person. Keep your answers to less than a minute.
