Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.
In this episode, I answer a listner’s question on how to approach people at networking events and start talking to them . This is so important because everything you want to achieve in life is through and with meeting new people.
It can be a bit daunting for people going to events in a room of strangers. Here are some pieces of advice I have learned to help you start out towards building meaningful relationships.
The first thing is to look approachable. Smile, gain eye contact with them and then go introduce yourself with a firm hand shake. Remember the person’s name and repeating it in the conversation is very helpful.
It is also important to ask questions. If you ask the question, it puts the conversation over to them. Furthermore do some research in advance. If you can, find out who is going and prepare your questions in advance.
