Conversation: you never know where it will lead you

Les Einhorn, Logical Effective Solutions, Australia
A while ago now, when on a client site and with arms deep in the bowels of a computer, this ragamuffin, lightly bearded, very casual painter asked me a couple of curly MS Excel questions. It would have been so easy to brush him off to focus on the job at hand. Yet
you never know who you are talking with. I spent a few minutes discussing his Excel problem, giving him a few relevant suggestions, then gently pointed out I was being paid to be onsite and repair the client’s computer.

Turns out this fellow was a good friend of the business owners and was helping them paint their offices. Also turns out he was about to start his new job as Production Manager of a leading seatbelt manufacturer– that very soon gave my company considerable work. Quite a worthwhile few minutes’ conversation.
