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:
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 ?
My Best, Kellie
