Sam Horn is author of Got Your Attention?: How to Create Intrigue and Connect with Anyone, which provides great insights into how to be intriguing in life and business. Some of the key ideas she puts forth include: Ask questions based on pertinent facts – Did you know...? People like to hear interesting facts – it not only provides them with information but it makes you appear well-educated and informed. Make what you say memorable and repeatable. Do you have a catch-phrase, a favourite quote, story or fact? Use it –make your talk viral. Show and ask. Don’t show and tell. Make sure people relate. Make a proposal, provide a solution, describe a problem and ask how the other person relates to it. Ask lots of questions. Engage others by asking questions – Has this ever happened to you? Did you ever...? Have you experienced..? Keep abreast of current trends, news, and stories New information is good information. Be hip. Be amusing. Be interesting.
