Tip of the Week

Attending a [Smaller] Networking Lunch? Sit Strategically


Would you like to gain additional exposure and increase your prospecting success? Think strategically before you sit down at your next networking lunch, or any event where you are being served a meal.

This tip is intended for smaller gatherings where participants have an opportunity to share his/her elevator speech/value proposition.

Arrive early to view the eating area.  Locate a table where the most participants will see you. Then, find the seat where you only have to angle your body to the left and right to make eye contact when you are speaking, and not have to turn around.  

Two additional suggestions:
- Speak loudly and project your voice
- Stand up, even if everyone else sits down.  Your gestures will be more fluid and natural and projecting your voice will be much easier
