Dear Ms. Hall,
We met at the Corporate Strategy meeting last month, but I didn’t get a chance to give you a business card and ask if you are willing to join my career network.
I am writing today to send you all my contact information, including my business card, because I think it could be mutually beneficial to share this information with you.
While we work in different areas of the organization, I felt the rapport we shared was so strong that we should keep in contact, possibly work together on a future endeavor.
Thanks for your time. I look forward to hearing back with your contact information — and your acceptance into my network of contacts.
