How Do I Ask for a One-on-One Meeting?

Choosing to meet for a one-on-one provides us with the opportunity to learn more about one another for mutual benefit.  Through collaboration we can potentially become customers, clients, power partners, or raving fans, refer one another, work with, for, and on behalf of mutual clients, share and implement best practices, etc. The possibilities are endless and begin with a conversation! Without scheduling meetings, we are leaving opportunities and dollars on the table, after already investing time and energy in networking, social media, etc.

Whether you have just met someone at a networking event, through social media, another introduction, or haven’t chatted with them in a year, it’s time to schedule a meeting to Discover Wants and Needs. Here’s a sample email I send and cc myself to invite individuals to a one-on-one and follow-up as appropriate:
