Sum Up and Appreciate

One of the most memorable ways to close is to sum up the conversation and show appreciation for your partner. To do that, shake hands and acknowledge the conversation and its importance to you. You could even acknowledge the importance in your life of the relationship you have with your partner, which perhaps goes way beyond this encounter. Find a specific quality in the other person or a moment in the conversation that you can genuinely express appreciation for:

  • "If the other members of ASID are as enthusiastic as you are, I'm going to be very glad I joined."

  • "It's been interesting talking with you about your new business."

  • "I'm so glad to know more about your department."

  • "I enjoyed hearing about how you got involved in interior design."

  • "Thanks for telling me about your new marketing tactics. I'm looking forward to hearing next month how they are working out."
