Here are some valuable tips on business networking.
The most important lesson I’ve learned in networking (which I’d wish I’d known years ago) is to take every advantage possible to meet new people. Efficiently communicating and never dismissing a single soul — you never know who you’re talking to, who they might know or how they’d be able to contribute. I find it wise to do your homework, in advance. Understand everyone is there for a similar reason and for the most part want to make new connections, so don’t be shy; just walk up and introduce yourself, the only thing you have to lose is an opportunity. – Lori Cheek of Cheekd
