Attending networking events

Attending networking events: Consulting Professional Weekly Tips
Attending networking events: Consulting Professional Weekly Tips

Networking events can be great for business and partnership development. Go in with a strategy. One approach is to meet as many people as possible in short conversations, and ask if you can follow up with them after the event. Another approach is to be targeted and find a small handful of people to build relationships with. While you're there, make sure your intent matches their intent. If they're looking to "speed date" and you want to have a long conversation, that won't go well.
