You introduced yourself to a new employee at your company in the hallway. You chatted with each other for a minute, and now you need to get back to work. You end the conversation by saying:
Well, I look forward to working with you.
There are several uses for the word "well". One important use is to show that you are ready to finish a conversation. Starting a sentence with "well" makes it clear that you'd like to move on to something else. The end of the conversation might go something like this:
A: Well, I look forward to working with you.
B: Yeah, me too.
A: See you around.
To "look forward to (doing something)" means to be excited about it. However, this is mostly a polite expression so it doesn't carry a really strong feeling of excitement. It does sound polite, though.
When you've just met someone in a business or formal situation, use the phrase "I look forward to ___ing" near the end of your first conversation. For example:
I look forward to working with you.
I look forward to doing business with you.
I look forward to meeting you. (Use this with someone who you've been writing to, but haven't met yet.
