Last week I was honored to be invited once again
to celebrate her highness, Queen Elizabeth’s birthday party,
that was held by the British embassy in Israel.
Those type of official events,
are networking events with prestige, I would say.
There is a high-status audience;
from different government members from around the world,
to senior army personnel, to corporate CEOs and more.
Don’t you feel awkward at networking events sometimes?
I used to feel really awkward and overwhelmed.
I cant forget this day, many years back,
I entered a networking event.
I was by myself standing in the entrance,
and all I saw was people and people and people.
Many were walking past me in and out.
Some talked to each other, some were laughing,
some were on the phone –
everyone seemed to be so busy.
I was feeling awkward and overwhelmed. (more…)
Did you know people Google you?
Just as often as you probably Google them!
There is so much info about us out there, in the “Online Sphere”
but the real deal is knowing how to use this info to our advantage!
Googling and researching people before any type of meeting,
or before approaching them at an event,
can be so powerful- if you know how to!
> How can you use it to close deals? (more…)
I’m sure you’ve experienced a similar scenario:
You know how you come back from a certain networking event or social gathering,
and your mind is so preoccupied with information, experiences, work and home tasks – you name it!
You let those business cards you’ve collected lay on the counter until you’ll contact those people you met sometime later on…
By the time you get to hold those business cards again,
you don’t always remember to match faces to names to people…. Ouch!
What if you could do three simple, quick steps
that have the power to create a good rapport and a stronger connection
right away with those new people you’ve met?
