Make valuable connections with area business leaders
Alongside our sessions and workshops, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and network with other area business leaders. We will provide you with time in between to get to know the people at your table, the speaker’s, potential business partners, and the NOW team. Be sure to have conversation starters ready to go, and schedule extra time before and after conference days so you can have the opportunity to make more connections with others.
If you are looking for networking tips, here are a few of our favorites:
- Bring your business cards
- Plan some ice-breaker questions
- Share personal stories to help build relationships
- Be sure to ask open-ended questions
- Always be genuine and keep eye contact
- Follow up with your connections after the conference is over
Now that you know you will have the opportunity to meet hundreds of new individuals in the best world, be sure to put your best foot forward. First impressions can be a deal breaker but practicing these tips and putting them into action will help you become more successful.
We are so excited to meet all of you and help build relationships in 2017!
There will be spaces available for you to sit and talk with your connections in a group or in a more private setting. Enjoy good food, great company, and informative sessions at #SMWL17!
