It can feel a little old fashioned, but thank you notes are still appreciated in this digital world. I use thank you notes as a way to give thanks and remind others of our interaction. I enjoy writing thank you emails because then I have a record of what we discussed.

As per points 8 and 9 of my conference guide, I use thank you notes to keep in touch with those I chatted with.
My generic template is:
- reminder of what we discussed
- any followup
So as an email, it could look like:
To: Super Cool Person Subject: Great seeing you at the conference Body: Hi Super! I greatly enjoyed talking with you this weekend. I really liked discussing xyz and learning about abc that solves many of the problems I was having. I look forward to having coffee with you the next time you are in town. Thank you once again, Jenn
I tend to be rather casual with my thank you notes, you can easily make it more formal if desired.

Love the idea. Thanks for the template. 👍🏼
Nice structure! I tend to do something quite similar whenever I meet someone at a conference or (sadly less frequently) at a business dinner or meetup 🙂
