A few things to remember when attending a networking event:
- Don't be shy. Go ahead and make the first move by extending a handshake. You have to be a go-getter at networking events!
- Make sure you have quite a few business cards on hand. These events range from 50-200 attendees, you don't want to strike up a conversation and realize that you have no business card to pass along.
- Follow up with the individuals you meet. Making connections is not a one-night deal. You have to follow through.
- Go in with an open mind. What are your goals for that evening? To promote your business? To find new industry partners? Get to know as many people as you can- you never know who you may end up meeting!
We hope to see you at all of the above mentioned events! Stop by and chat with us- we promise to have business cards on hand.
