Effective Networking Tips

Categories: Business Communication

Here are five pointers to help you develop the art of face-to-face networking...

  1. Remember, networking isn’t an event, it’s a process. You have the opportunity to meet people everywhere, every day. So be open and look for these opportunities.
  2. Pay attention to how you come across. Some considerations – smile, be well-groomed, and remember the importance of a good handshake.
  3. Prepare your self-introduction. What do you want people to know about you?
  4. Be interested in others. The more you ask about others, the smarter you appear to them in conversation.
  5. Follow up. Remember to progress from contact to connection. Keep in touch. Always look for ways to help your networking contacts.
