What to do at a networking event ~ and all life events

April 24, 2012

And I don’t mean LISTEN to the keynote (though they are important and probably why you paid to be there), I mean listen, truly listen to the person in front of you. You may have known them for two minutes at a networking event or twenty-two years but…listen.

Many times, we’re quite frankly relentless with the focus on our agendas, our programs and our story that we forget to be present with the human being that is sharing themselves in front of us; sharing of themselves in front of us.

What is LIFE if not about connections (read: beyond social media), relationships and being in relationship? Business is no different. And neither are those two minute networking event moments…

Don’t pose, be.
