Networking means ‘talking’ so to that end, there are many varieties of HOW to Network effectively. In my book, Networking On Steroids, I discuss what could WORK for you…and perhaps, what will NOT !!!
Everyone has different levels of comfort when attending a Networking event – if YOUR comfort zone is supposedly a SMALL group, be careful…in THESE groups, most usually, you MUST speak !!! In a LARGE group where there is an actual agenda and announcements, usually on the MC’s and a few VIP’s get the microphone.
Do not ASSUME that a small group is an easier fit for you unless you have mastered your infomercial and your own unique conversation skill/s !!! Networking IS an art form, and when done correctly, can yield massive profit, both personally AND professionally !!!
