Recently an old business acquaintance got back in touch with me having read an article about me in the media. It was lovely to get his call and to catch up after many years of losing touch.  Since he made that call, we have reconnected and we have worked on several assignments together which is fab.

So never get rid of those old contacts in your address book.  Even though you might not have spoken or written to someone for ages, its amazing how the human touch "just a call or email to say hello" works wonders.  The trick is to reconnect to find out about the other person – not to sell them something!  As we get more and more caught up in electronic communication, take a few minutes to reconnect with someone in your address book that you have not spoken to for ages – its amazing how it might benefit both of you!
