Have you attended the ribbon cuttings and weekly/monthly coffees with your local Chamber of Commerce ???
People are ALWAYS asking for more places to go for ‘networking’ and I am quick to mention Chambers of Commerce have something for everyone.
If your ‘skill’ level in the Networking arena is NEW, I recommend you attend the largest event you can find and ‘blend in’ !!! Watch the ‘leaders’ and see what they do – who they connect with – who the connect TO – and how they ‘work the room’ during the event.
The best advice, JUST GET OUT THERE !!! The more you mess up what you wanted to say, the quicker you will perfect and fine tune your Networking skills.
