Let’s face it, when I say the word ‘networking’, does it make you want to poke your eyes out with a sharp stick? If so, do you think you are going to make any meaningful connections, going in with this attitude?
A few weeks ago, I gave a workshop at the Critical Mass conference, held at The Royal Institute in London for social entrepreneurs, investors and government ministers. The purpose of the talk (including lots of role play!) was to teach people how use flirting to network in a more rewarding way.
Georgia Humpherys, in her excellent post for Pioneers Post, captured the essence of the talk beautifully. I have cut and pasted her article below, and here is the link, if you’d like to go to the site.
The workshop with the best title at Critical Mass showed delegates the best way to garner a stack of new business cards at conferences.
