Tip of the Week, 2015 Jan #3

Don’t Listen to Your Mother. Talk to Strangers at Networking Events


Imagine you arrive at a lunchtime networking event. It takes place in a hotel conference room, comfortably sitting 150 people. As you enter through the main doors, you briefly stop to survey the room. “Where do I sit?” you ask yourself.

If you are like many people, you follow human nature and seek out comfort and safety. This means you seek out people you know—friends, colleagues, perhaps someone you met before. No longer…

To be successful at business networking, you should be stretching your comfort and safety zones.

At your next event, only sit with strangers.
