- When attending a networking event do your homework. Find out the purpose of the event and who is likely to attend.
- If a response to a networking event is requested, check your calendar and reply immediately. Let your host know if your plans change.
- Think of how you will introduce yourself to others at a networking event and rehearse your lines.
- If a networking event includes a meal sit with people you don’t know rather than your best friend or the crew from the office.
At any business event handle the exchange of business cards discreetly. Don’t just pass them around the room.
