Networking Face-to-Face

Getting in and out of a crowded room full of strangers smoothly and effectively — while handling food, drink and conversation and accomplishing the goal of meeting and connecting with people — involves strategy and practice.

In this Workshop, participants learn how to network face to face and “work the room” by using those important soft skills to accomplish soft marketing at conferences, receptions and other business and social events. Some of the topics that are addressed include:

  • How to Respond to the Invitation
  • What to Wear
  • How to Prepare
  • When to Arrive
  • Going it Alone
  • The Name Badge
  • Shaking Hands
  • Talking the (Small) Talk
  • The Buffet Line
  • Greeting while Eating
  • Exchanging Business Cards

So, if your networking is not working, don’t give up! Learn how to reduce your anxiety about schmoozing with strangers and mingle confidently, efficiently and successfully.
