Say YES to Introductions that Work and NO to Elevator Speeches.
Networking is not a competition for the best speaker or best comedian awards. It is not “Hello my name is Lisa. I sell pink widgets to people who have purple polka dots. Would you like 3 or 4 sets to give as gifts. I promise I’ll stop shaking your hand as soon as you place an order.”
Yes, it is important to be able to articulate who you are and what you do; to use language that speaks to your ideal client. Yet, one’s 30-second introduction is not the most important aspect of networking.
Networking is relationship building. To quote my colleague Jeffrey Hattrick, “networking is relationships.
It is through these relationships we build a strong business foundation. The stronger the foundation, the more apt we are to grow our business, to expand our sphere of influence. The stronger the foundation, the easier it becomes for us to attract clients.
