Having the right professional contacts can help you expand your business and open the door to new opportunities. One of the best ways to meet those contacts is by attending business networking events. Whether you’re at an industry-specific conference or a general entrepreneur meetup, you’re sure to connect with people who can help you grow.
#1 It’s about being genuine
Networking events are a bit like being set up on a blind date, and similar rules apply. Don’t take over the conversation and talk about yourself and your business. People want to feel that you are genuinely interested in them.
