What happens when you are cornered at an event by a talker?
And by “talker,” I mean that person who will talk without coming up for air, monopolizing your time and verbally blocking all means of escape. If talkers pause to ask you a question, they don’t really care what you have to say, it’s just a segue to what they want to say next and continued conversation incarceration.
The solution does not sound like very nice etiquette, but you introduce that person to someone else. If you are at an event to network, whether you are representing your company or representing yourself, you are there to do business. If someone is keeping you from doing business, you need to move away from that person.
If there is no one around to introduce (meaning everyone else has identified the talker before you), say, “Please excuse me, there is someone I need to talk to before the end of the evening.” Do not even try, “I have to use the restroom,” because the talker might say, “I do too,” or “Good, I’ll wait for you.” Be polite, but get away. Leave skid marks.
