How can you get to know the people you should meet, better and faster

I just wanted to share a quick technique i’ve experimented with successfully and added to my tool box, which is helping me to connect with people around me much faster and better. Networking
People networking hear so many project pitches, few will match perfectly or really interest them. How can you make yours stand out? The answer is don’t. Drop the pitch. Getting to know the person behind the project is far more valuable, and what they want to know is what drives you, so i’ve been asking ‘what change are you trying to make in this world?’.
