Contact Mapping with Adrian and Tom
Ever meet someone who seems to know you, but you have no idea who they are? You try jogging your brain, but nothing comes forth. Imagine if the opposite happened. You meet someone and not only remember them, but you can easily recall a few meaningful details about them or their life. As human beings, nothing impresses us like being remembered and having a feeling that someone cares.
Tom Chenault has been “contact mapping” people since 1972. He is positive it’s been the main reason for his success in business and in life. He is the person to call when anyone “needs someone who knows someone.”
Contact Mapping came into existence as a crm and app when Adrian Chenault envisioned digitizing what Tom does intuitively. The concept enables virtually everyone to “keep track” of their relationships at a level they never thought possible.
