What Does Your Name Badge Say About YOU ?

If you have TOO MUCH on your name badge, it is hard to read; if you have too much on your name badge, you take away the opportunity for those you meet to ask questions; if you have too much on your name badge, it may scare people off !!!

A name badge is an identifier and perhaps even a conversation starter.  Sometimes, depending upon the industry of the person, I have suggested a colorful name badge with JUST HIS/HER name on it, nothing else.  This will FORCE the other attendees to say “What do you do?” and that leaves the answer portion WIDE OPEN, depending upon the event and the other attendees in the room.

Be creative and make your Networking experience FUN.  People will WANT to meet with you for coffee if they have noticed something special about you, so give them that chance.


Cathy Weaver

Cathy Weaver began Networking full time in June of 2008, when she 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.
