I had the honor of being on a panel at my college’s, Colby Sawyer College, alumni networking event. I can’t believe it has been 23 years since I graduated, but I don’t feel any different than I did then, only with more grey hair. 😊
The theme of the night was networking. Many people feel, including me for years, believe that networking is scary, but a necessary evil. It is a lot like cold calling, most people hate it, and if they say they like it, they are lying. Working a room at an and event can seem daunting, and intimidating. Most don’t know how to effectively start a conversation, but once they do it is much easier than they imagined.
After running many networking events as well as being at many of them, there are 3 quick ways I have found to highly effective and take the anxiety out of the networking process.
Keep up the good work!
