AmSpirit Rx (Pre-Networking Networking)

Some sage networking advice from Andrew Chiodo (author of The Fine Art of Networking) is to start your networking prior to the next event. “Email three people you want to meet in advance, saying “Hey, I haven’t had a chance to meet you and I thought you might be interested in attending the (name of event). I would really like to meet you there and get your comments about (what you do). Let me know if you plan to attend, and we can have (a cup of coffee/lunch/whatever the event offers) and chat.”

  1. Thanks for this great suggestion. Along with opening the line of communication, this requires that you commit and follow-through on real networking effort, rather than just go through the motions of showing up. Sometimes it takes that extra self-nudge to get the most out of the opportunity.
