Today I am booking in Networking Events galore! If you’ve never done one, you should deffinately give it a go. But you need to have a clear idea in your head as to why you are going. There are a few reasons not to go i.e. the most annoying one is people that are all sell sell sell at the events. It is such a put off. So that cannot be your reason for attending an event.
I was just thinking about other tips to give and that reminded me about getting some more business cards printed. At first I would hold back and try to judge who to give them too. But at the end of the day you don’t know who people know and have contacts with, so it’s worth passing one on to the people you chat with. I still disagree with people passing them around like candy, smells of desperation?
Let me know if you know of any Networking Events in London coming up. I’m always interested in new groups to try.
