Want to find out more about what The Networking Workbook has to offer?

The chapters are organized to optimize your preparation for an event, as well as your actions during and after the event….

You’ll start out by developing your long term business goals. The worksheets in this chapter will guide you through exploring what you envision for your business, career and personal life. This will allow you to be laser-focused on what you want to gain from the networking event.

Next, you’ll organize the basic event details. Gathering information about the location and directions to the event may seem trivial or obvious, but organizing this information will help alleviate anxiety. Your energy can then be focused on putting your best foot forward and NOT on how to get to your location or where to park. In this chapter, you’ll find a checklist that will ensure you’ve taken all the necessary steps to be ready to attend the event.

Then, you’ll set your goals for the networking event and formulate a specific plan of action for achieving those goals.When you’re in the midst of a networking event, you may start to feel nervous and overwhelmed. It can be easy to lose focus on WHY you even signed up to attend the event in the first place! By determining your goals ahead of time, you’ll be setting a structure in place that will guide your actions at the event and ensure you’ll have a successful experience from start to finish.

One of the biggest challenges when attending a networking event is how to break the ice. The Networking Workbook will help you determine exactly how to introduce yourself to others in a way that’s pleasant and professional. In this chapter, you’ll also be provided with conversation starters that will allow you to find connections with others at the event and build relationships that will help grow your business.

Finally the Networking Workbook will help you coordinate a plan for following up with each contact that you made at the event and help you personally process how the event went. This will allow you to brainstorm what went well and what you would change so that upcoming events are even more successful than the last.

Whether you are new to networking or a seasoned pro, The Networking Workbook will help you take your skills to the next level so each networking event is am enriching experience. If you consider yourself an introvert, these easy to follow and interactive worksheets will help increase your confidence.

    This book is a great networking resource, with tips and worksheets on initiating conversations to remembering details. As a shy person, I often struggle with initiating conversations, but the suggestions in this book are easy to follow and make the situation seem less intimidating and more manageable.
