How to become more effective at Networking Events – Part 12

Eat before you go

A lot of networking events include meals and there is a temptation to view this as a major benefit of the event. But we need to remember our purpose for attending the event. Meeting those key future prospects should rank higher than eating those runny eggs.

  • It is also difficult to have any meaningful conversation with a mouth full of bacon.
  • Empty stomachs can growl and also cause bad breath.
  • You will meet more people standing next to the buffet than you will eating it.

So next time you are attending an important networking event, grab a snack before you go. Then when you arrive you can get down to business.
