I know that, pretty much every time I sit down with people, everyone else in the room knows more about something than I do.
However, almost all of them agree with the saying that it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt.
So, how do you break the ice to get the experts sharing?
I do it by asking dumb questions. It's a tough job, but it's my job. Sometimes.
