Closing conversations can be difficult, especially if you are talking with business clients. You want to convey the purpose of the conversation, and get people to think about what you said or were selling, but at the same time you don’t want to come off as rude or uninterested.
If you have to close the conversation there are a few things that you will want to do, especially if the conversation is in person instead of over the phone or online. Here are ways that you can close the conversation and still get your point across:
“How about meeting next week?’ or “Let’s get back together soon to discuss this” are both good ways to start signalling that you need to end the conversation, but you open up the possibility of meeting again, which will keep the person you are talking to interested and thinking about what
you said so that they are ready to carry on discussions at a later date.
Using civil phrases such as “I don’t want to keep you,” “I wish we could keep talking but I have an appointment,” or “I’ve lost track of time…” are all ways that you can exit the conversation politely. Following this up with a future meeting time or talking date is a good idea.
Looking at body language is a good way to figure out if it’s getting to be time to go. If the person you are talking to seems to be giving shorter responses or is putting things in their bag, it is time to wrap things up. Your person of interest will thank you and appreciate that you kept things shorter.
While this might seem obvious or even unnecessary, it is actually an important aspect of making a person respect you. Saying goodbye, and even better, offering a handshake, will make a person remember you and what you had to say.
