How do we make networking fun and worth our time?

How do we make networking fun and worth our time?

How do we make the most out of our time at a networking event.

Here's what I do:
I go with a goal in mind of meeting 5 people and getting 5 business cards or
Women Friends Partyphone numbers. It's like playing a game and challenging yourself to get out there and
just talk to people!
Get to know them a little bit, ask questions like, where did you hear about this event?
what do you do? tell me more about that? what do you find to be most difficult? It's a
relaxing conversation, just be yourself.
For me it's about the new person I am talking with, I love to learn about what they do
and who they are. Most of the time I can quickly find something in common with
them. Caution: DO NOT SPEND ALL YOUR TIME WITH ONE PERSON IF YOUR GOAL IS TO GET FIVE CARDS!
You politely excuse your self saying, I don't want to take up anymore of your time but I will definitely be in touch, great to meet you Sue!
And there it is.......... this opens the door so when you follow up within two days with
a call or email they will expect it.
Call or email language:
Hi Sue,
It was so great to meet with you, I would love to grab coffee and learn more about your coaching business, are you available 11/5/19 at 2:00 pm or 11/12 @ 10:00 am ?
