Last week I was at a networking dinner. When I arrived, many had already taken their places, and I sat at the end of the table and with no-one opposite. The most viable conversation partner was just the one guy to my left.
He realised that I wasn’t well connected to the rest of the group. He offered to move and let me sit in the centre.
What a difference a seat made! It’s fascinating how such tiny interventions can have such a lasting impact. I was quickly in conversation with three others, rather than just one. I will always be thankful to Sesh for this offer. It reminded of how tiny differences in our environment can have such a profound impact.
