Question of the Fortnight: What do you do to prepare for networking events that other people might not?

Question of the FortnightWhat is a fortnight? It’s 14 days or 2 weeks.

What is “Question of the Fortnight?” Every other week I’ll ask a question here on the blog. Through out the two weeks I’ll update the blog post with some of your answers. These will be from the comments below, from people I see networking and any other way I happen to receive your answer to the question.

This fortnight’s question is: What do you do to prepare for networking events that other people might not?

Some of the answers I’ve received are:

I set an intention on how many people I want to meet with in between groups. –Felicity Joy

Instead of reciting the same thing at every meeting, I take some time to think about a recent story to share about being of service to someone. It’s about making myself and my business real for others and creating a trusted relationship. – Karen Carlson

I get there early so I can reach out to new people. – Laura S

As someone that is a “Jill of all trades” and relatively tech savvy, I try to focus on listening for people’s trouble spots. If someone has a challenge and I can help them in less that 20 minutes by pointing out a (free) app or forwarding an article or blog post I make a note to do that when I get home. While this is certainly the right thing to do, it has also helped me receive shout outs and referrals. – Mary Wu
