With so many engagements, there was a skill to navigating the circuit. Hugh Jackman said he learned from the master: George Clooney. “I watched him one day at an event like this — it was packed,” Mr. Jackman said… “And he never stopped moving, ever.”
He demonstrated with an elegant shuffle-pivot step. “You go, ‘Hi, thank you, wonderful to see you, thank you so much.’ And you get really close, and really direct eye contact. And then he’s gone, before they get their phone out,” Mr. Jackman said. “I thought, that’s the way to go.”
From the New York Times this week, a good description of celebrity-caliber networking.
