How do we network during a pandemic?

How do we network during a pandemic?

We are all trying to navigate through this together right?

We are used to setting up appointments to meet people for coffee or chat over the phone We are used to going to networking events, seminars etc. well we can't do that anytime soon, so now what?

Here is what I have learned:

I am a firm believer or I was a firm believer in meeting face to face. Enjoying conversation, reading someones body language, seeing their facial expression. That tells me a lot!

I knew I had to do things differently during the pandemic in order to stay in front of people that I know and to also meet new people. I had to get out of my comfort zone and do things differently.

I learned you can meet people and get to know them through online video calls
I learned you can meet people and get to know them by starting a Podcast
I learned you can meet people and get to know them by starting a conversation on LinkedIn and other social medias that leads to a call then video meeting
I learned you can meet people and get to know them by sending out a weekly newsletter
I learned you can meet people and get to know them by giving back
I learned you can meet people and get to know them by doing Face book live


Knowing people and getting to know them as a person are two different things! Building a meaningful relationship, now that's important to me.

Has it been a lot of work? YES Am I completely out of my comfort zone? YES But I have learned a lot and am better from it.

Thanks for reading!

With Gratitude,

Kellie
