I have heard a common saying in the world of networking: "Attend as many networking events as you can". Although this does sound ideal, it can leave you burned out and tired of networking. As the Champion Networker, I suggest "Niche Networking". This basically means selecting a niche audience, organization or association to do networking. Fine tuning and narrowing your base can be very beneficial in reaching your networking agenda!
