Pacman Rule for conferences and social gatherings

Do you want to meet new people?

I thought I’d share something very cool I came across at another conference. It’s called the PACMAN rule (like the video game) pacman.

The Pac-Man Rule

The rule is:

When standing as a group of people, always leave room for 1 person to join your group.

More memorably, stand like Pac-Man!

This makes it easier for people to break into your conversation, and for everyone to meet new people.

Hope some people find this useful!
