“The Art of Networking” with Jackie Watson

Whether you’re a familiar or brand new face in an organization or networking group, everyone wants to be comfortable. People tend to gravitate to people they like. It’s important that people have their “huddle time” with familiar faces, friends, and their core network, but it’s also important to also introduce yourselves to new people.“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.” -Bill Nye “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold…” -Sue Lynch

 

For some people, networking comes naturally, while for others it’s completely terrifying. Some may be nervous, anxious, and they might simply not know the fundamentals on how to network, they may not have the social skills, or it’s work to them and they just want to drop some cards to feel like they accomplished something.

 

Every once in a while when someone comes in hot with their business card it feels like a sales call more than a networking moment. You know who you are, the person ready to give you 60 cards all at once. Individuals (or companies) must really embrace participating in various types of events to fully add value and get something meaningful out of it. It might only take one networking event to become friends, while with others it may take years, or a lifetime to build the rapport you’re looking for.

 

Join Jackie in learning “Three Hardcore Rules To The Art of Networking” and why it will either be a sales pitch, true networking, or a great friendship.
