How to succeed at Speed Networking

Speed Networking is great fun, so don’t miss the chance to do it at our next BH Banter on Monday 5th March.

To be successful at Speed Networking you need to do the following

Prepare

You will only have a couple of minutes to explain who you are, what you do and why people want and use your services, so before the event work out what you are going to say. You don’t want to waste time trying to make it up on the night.

The way to win business is to be clear and concise.

Listen

You are going to meet a lot of people in a short period of time.

Make sure you listen to what they say and try to work out how they can help you.

For example, if your a photographer and they organise events or do marketing then they could be a great strategic partner.

Even if you don’t need the service they provide, you might know someone who does, referring people helps you and them, you get to help a friend, your networking contact gets business and often both will try to refer you in future.

Business Cards

Business  cards are essential, often people will make notes on the cards so they follow up afterward and also it helps them remember who they have met.
