“What a terrific, interactive workshop this morning presented by Soraya Raju of Migrate Success at North Ryde Golf Club. The Art of Networking covered many aspects of this important part of your business, down to what business card designs work and what don’t and the important issue of how best to juggle food, wine and handshakes (oh, and HOW to handshake).
Soraya covered the awkward things that hold people back at networking events: how to find someone to start a conversation with, and how to finish that conversation when you’ve had enough. How to integrate into a group of other people – standing close to a group of three or more is fine as you will be taken into the group, but best not to interrupt two people chatting together.
How to listen to the person you’re talking to and when is an appropriate time to ask for a business card. And little tricks to help you remember that person at a later time and impress them that you remembered so much about them. (We’re not giving that one away; you’ll have to talk to Soraya.)
Soraya is the networker’s networker; she is building her contact base by attending functions on a weekly basis and has worldwide connections as a result. Soraya was firm in convincing attendees that considering networking a part of your business, and not just something to do when you have time, is the way forward to success and growing your contacts.
We know our attendees enjoyed themselves and learned a lot. Thank you, Soraya!
