5 Tips for Power Networking

When attending a business reception, do you migrate toward people you know or those you do not know? Here are five tips for power networking during structured and unstructured gatherings:

1. Rather than migrating toward people you know, introduce yourself to new individuals.

2. Approach one person or three individuals since two people may be in a private conversation.

3. Ask questions rather than telling people about yourself. Individuals will see you as interesting when you are sincerely interested in them.

4. As you prepare to disengage from a group, extend your hand and echo something that you heard during the conversation.
Example: "Joe, it was nice talking with you. Have a safe trip to Chicago tomorrow."

5. Follow-up. Send an e-note to people with whom you have visited at least 15-minutes. This gesture will demonstrate your interest in having met.

By putting these five tips into practice, you will be making the most of unstructured gatherings.

Best,
