Five minutes isn’t long, so for those of you who are not sure how to structure a Speed Meeting, please refer to our mini guide below.

Remember to:

  • Say hello/shake hands.
  • Exchange business cards.
  • Introduce yourself, title and company.
  • Expand on what the company does and why.
  • Expand on future plans, projects, ideas – but prioritise. Less is more.
  • Ask for advice on next steps on a specific area.
