Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and much more.
In today’s episode, I offer three pieces of advice on how you can throw your very own networking dinner party to get to know your contacts better and build meaningful relationships.
Remember you’re on a mission to send everyone home happier. Do it right by add valuing to your guests and the evening could possibly open up new opportunities for you.
The first thing is to know who to invite. It helps build cohesiveness during the dinner to have a unifying bond among the invitees. If you’ve chosen right, your guests should be taking an interest in each other and it should make for a great evening.
Ths second thing to do is to make sure the food is ready in advance. Know what your guests would like to eat and have them prepared. You want to be at the table with your guests and not stuck in the kitchen the entire evening.
The third piece of advice is to keep the conversation flowing. Make sure there is no one being left out and if disagreements occur, you might want to change the topic. It is your party, so it is your job to keep people connecting.
