MWH at NPD AFP Westchester Nov13Following on yesterday’s posting of how I reconnected with a colleague after seeing his posting on LinkedIn, here’s another story from real life:

I received an email from a former LinkedIn coaching student who since moved away from the NYC metro area.

We used to see each other in passing or meet for coffee to catch up. Once my wife and I ran into her at Carnegie Hall at a concert. Small world that NYC…

We are still in touch electronically via her blog postings and my Linkedin postings.

She had referred me to her clients who needed someone right away to teach LinkedIn sales techniques at their firm.

She wanted me to contact them immediately (no problem!) and when I did, from their questions, it seems they had already read my LinkedIn profile, and the conversation really took off from there.

This could be the start of something really cool…
