Networking is a structured plan to get to know people who will do business with you or introduce you to those who will. Typically, ineffective networkers attend several networking groups but talk to the same friend's each time. Obviously, this behavior defeats the entire purpose of networking. Knowing this Laidback Allure in conjunction with The Cloud Room created The Social Club. A gathering where creatives, influencers and business entrepreneurs can converse over drinks and good music.
Remember networking is inclusive, not exclusive. After learning people's names, don't be afraid to add those wallflowers standing on the fringes to your conversation. This practice allows you to seamlessly move in and out of conversations while being a connector. AMAS also suggests you use your wardrobe to your advantage as comfort starts with appearance. A simple rule is to always dress one level better than the suggested dress code. Lastly be an active listener. Listening makes one captivating and will inspire you to ask smarter questions. Consider what we think about speech, "Talk is cheap", "That's mere rhetoric", "Silence is golden". People don't value listeners because they will respond with answers. We value the people who care to listen.
