Business Networking, it a necessary part of our business world these days. But how so you so it?
You join a Networking Group or two, hoping to make some connections, meet new contacts, make some new friends, devlop connections, etc.
Are you someone who can walk into a room and start a conversation with anyone and be completely confortable with it? How do you do that?
Are you someone who walks into the room, doesn't know a person, watches all of these others who are talking and don't quite know how to interject yourself into the conversations or start a new one. At the end of the night, you've spent it pretty much by yourself and leave talking to very few, if any people?
How do the great networkers do it? How do you walk into a room of complete strangers and not end up finding yourself in a corner, drinking a drink and watching almost everyone else deep into conversation and laughter.
Is Networking even necessary? Yes, unfortunately for the business world today, it is necessary.
How do you feel about business Networking? for those who succeed...what works for you?
