Small talk scenario: meeting a spouse at an office party

Post by James Trotta » Mon May 01, 2017 2:13 pm

Your company has an end of the year / Christmas party. Many of your colleague's have brought their spouses so Frank introduces you to his husband, John. John shakes your hand and says, "It's so nice to meet you. This is a wonderful party."

If you want to make small talk, what is an open-ended question you could ask that shows you are interested in the person? Please reply to this post with your question or questions. I will give you some feedback to let you know how well you do.

The last question requires a longer answer than "what country do you like?" - that's why I changed it.
