Networking Event Guide - FREE
If you follow me on social, you'll see I attend quite a few conferences. Both as a guest and a speaker. It's also something I'm asked about regularly. I created this document a few years ago to help you prepare, network, and follow up from events more effectively.
Find and plan which events you will be going to. Sites like Meetup or even Facebook groups can be a great way to find out which events are happening in your area, and which ones are worth attending.
Attending the Event
You want to make the most of your time at the event. It's very easy to lose track of time with one person, what will your exit strategy be if you're wasting too much time? Are your business cards easily accessible and easy to write on. What are your goals for the event?
How will you follow up with the people you meet and stand out from the other emails and calls that they get.
