How to become a Master Networker
With our Networking Hub coming up next week here are a few tips on how to improve your networking skills:
- Be yourself: Human beings enjoy talking to other human beings, not spammy advertisements or built-up personas.
- Build relationships: While you do want to be memorable, lying to get there is not the best strategy. It is generally easy to spot a liar.
- Take notes: After meeting someone, jot down a few notes. Try to remember small details that the other person shared with you. Remembering simple things like what they like to eat or where they like to travel can become important bits to use in later interactions.
- Follow up: Another great way to show that you care about the people you meet is to send a simple follow-up email. Using any notes or pieces of information that you remember, write an email that includes your appreciation for what they had to say and perhaps ask a follow-up question.
