You know networking is important to the growth of your business. You understand the importance of building business relationships. But, you feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and FED UP when attending events. Sometimes, it feels “So High School.” The popular girls are over there.
I’ve been there, done that and literally built a career by assisting with registration.
I was so shy I did not know how to initiate a conversation. Yet, I knew how to follow a script. My first career was retail management. I excelled at knowing what to say and what to do when a potential customer walked through the door. I knew how to follow the company training manual.
It wasn’t until I founded my personal services company I learned networking skills. I volunteered to help with registration. Simply because it was something to do during the mix and mingle part of the program. I could follow the script. “Hello, welcome. . . here’s your nametag. It’s open seating. Lunch will be served at noon.” By helping with registration I didn’t have to make small talk.
I quickly mastered my 30-second introduction. I was so %#@*! SCARED of being dinged, gonged, or laughed off the stage. I was haunted by the image of being silenced by a GIANT GONG and being pulled off the stage by a GIANT HOOK.
It wasn’t until I founded my personal services company I learned how to initiate conversations. I admit. I was way more comfortable listening, occasionally asking questions or commenting on something someone else said. Looking back, I completely understand why some of the first people I met suggested I go to Toastmasters.
I had to learn the Art of Networking, how to build relationships in order to grow my business.
I have nearly 20 years’ experience of working both sides of the table, networking my business and administrating networking events. I’ve seen what works. I’ve seen what doesn’t.
