Networking Event Tips

I loved these tips on attending a network event from the Culture and Manners Institute:

  • Enter the networking event with confidence:
  • Shoulders back
  • Glass in left hand, shake with your right.
  • Self-stick name tag just below your right shoulder, because that is where a person's eye goes when shaking your hand.
  • Do not scan the room like a lion looking for a fat zebra. Make eye contact with the people in front of you.
  • Introduce yourself.
  • Start and keep conversations going by asking others about themselves.
  • Hand your business card to people with the words facing that person.
