Networking is a SKILL !!!

When is the last time you attended a Networking event and left that event realizing that you MISSED some strategic opportunities ?  We all do this but how can you make sure you DON’T miss the next one ?

It is SO important to have a PLAN when you attend an event.  You need to make a list of what you want to accomplish at each event…meeting a new person or two…making a new connection that will benefit your company…walking away with that lead that could change the course of your business…learning a new skill from the speaker…experiencing a new restaurant that you may wish to use for YOUR OWN events for next time…

Whatever the reason/s is that you want to attend that Networking event, make SURE you have a plan in place.  We ALL attend events for the purpose of making a new connection or re-connecting with those we already know, but the TRUE plan needs to be goal-driven.  WHO will be there – WHAT will you say – WHEN will you set that appointment for a 1:1 meeting with them – MAKE A PLAN and write it down…this will come more naturally to you as your Networking skills are secured but for now, WRITE IT DOWN and practice.

Cathy Weaver began Networking full time in June of 2008, when she co-founded her Miracles With Water company. She started Networking all over the Greater Kansas City area and was soon referred to as a ‘Master Networker’. Her involvement in these groups over the years has actually awarded her designations such as 2012 Volunteer of the Year for the Olathe Chamber of Commerce; a four-time Bartlett-Olson Membership Achievement Award Recipient; and Cathy was voted into the KC Magazine’s 2013 Class of Most Influential Women. In 2018, Cathy was selected as the Kansas Women Business Advocate of the Year by the Kansas Department of Commerce. With the success of her Kangen Water business, dba Miracles With Water, Cathy also found the time to write 3 books: "Networking On Steroids" published in 2012, "He Hit The Clouds Running...and never looked back" published in 2017 and "Networking On Steroids PQ" published in 2020. From #water to #networking to #grief and beyond, Cathy may be that person YOU would like to have speak to your group, virtually, of course.
