Thursday November 14th, Author and expert Kelly Hoey and I engaged in a fireside chat at Seabird Restaurant in Manhattan about building the dream network for your ultimate goal.
As LadyDrinks is largely a group of women with businesses seeking clients for their product or service, my questions focused on:
Networking is about generosity and trust.
Establish yourself as an expert. The question isn’t “Who do you know?” The better question is “It’s WHO knows what you know?”
Use social media to reach out on birthdays, shoot random notes, schedule one on one time with key relationships. Direct engagement is so key. Targeted emails, phone calls and notes are important.
