Networking involves more than just attending events and paying club memberships. It is more than just handing out business cards and selling. It is more than just "working" the room and self promotion. It is involves growing, developing and maintaining a true network.
We operate in networks. We communicate, both verbally and non-verbally, on a regular basis. So, why not use these skills to create a dynamic support system for success?? At your next networking event, have a specific plan for building a strong network. Be prepared, focused and aware. Last but not least, follow up with your contacts for making good connections!
