Engaging with people in Networking

I was talking with an NRG member today about his experiences presenting Seminars at NRG Business Networking Lunch Events. He shared that he had received 2 referrals from people at each of the last 2 talks, but none for the 2 before those. The only thing that differed was that he did not use a PowerPoint presentation in the last 2 and felt the audience was much more engaged with him as a result.

Finding ways of engaging with the people you regularly meet networking are vital in getting to build strong business relationships. Presenting to your group is a great way of engaging and adding value to the others. An experience of you sharing your expertise first hand goes a long way to establishing your credibility and building trust in you and your services.

How many speaking slots do you have in your diary?

Good Networking!
