Women in Business Luncheon-Speed Networking 04/08/15 Much like “speed dating” it is about making initial contact with as many people as possible in a short period of time. The idea is that first impressions count, if you hit it off with someone and feel that you have things in common then you can meet up again later and take more time to build a relationship. This is a quick, focused opportunity to meet those who can propel your business.
· Bring your elevator pitch & business cards
· Listen, listen, listen There is no time for selling. Simply have a conversation and learn about each new connection - who they are, what they do.
· Follow Up is the key. Speed-networking delivers high volume and quality connections, but you must follow up and begin to cultivate the relationships. The initial interaction is only the starting point for each of your new potential relationships.
