Do you just walk up to a group of people and introduce yourself? Or do you capture a lone gazelle by the drinking table and ask it to talk to you? What is your strategy? Debbie: I usually lean on body language. Depends if I make eye contact with a solo gazelle, I might be able to strike up a conversation with them. Usually I will watch the body language of the groups.

Then you join as an active listener, and then the small conversations separate from the large groups because they get too big and you become part of one of those small groups.
