This is part one of a five-part series on Making The Most Of Your Networking Experience.
I know how nerve-racking it can be to walk into a room full of people you don't know and introduce yourself. I have been to hundreds of networking events, and I still get nervous every single time. Each week I am going to give you a tip that I use to make the most of my networking experience.
Tip #1, Have a plan in place before you go. Think about whom you want to meet and some targets. Maybe you can reach out to these people before the event so that when you arrive, you can go directly to those people. You are bound to meet other individuals in the surrounding area, and the conversation will just flow from there.
Stay tuned for part two next, have a great day!
