Have you ever rekindled a business relationship with someone you thought had long forgotten about you?

Maybe it's some basic feeling in us that we aren't as memorable as we'd like to be, but I've found I'm proved wrong nearly every time.

After more than a 5 year gap from working within a niche sector in IT, I'm finding lots of new engagements with people I originally met a decade or more ago, but haven't seen since.

Many of us move in and out of sectors, roles and social groups, but those connections can still be warmed up within seconds.

If you've got hundreds (or thousands) of contacts in LinkedIn, maybe it's time to re-engage with some old friends.

Great post attached by Scott Pollack below with loads of useful tips on keeping the flames of friendship alive, or rekindling them after a long absence.
