Common-sense Networking Checklist

4 Comments

  1. Thanks for the great networking reminders Chris! It’s amazing how many events I’ve attended and the person I am speaking to has either ‘forgotten’ or ‘just run out’ of their business cards!

    I am facilitating the Burnaby Board of Trade Networking breakfasts and I’ve made sure that attendees are advised to bring a sufficient supply of business cards. Don’t leave home without ’em! (even my grandmother has my business cards should anyone ask! 🙂 )

    The one point that you list that I think is one of the most important is #6 – Get Permission for future communications. I didn’t attend that networking event just to be stuck on someone’s mailing list selling me widgets that I don’t want in the first place. ALWAYS ask for permission – without permission you could be lumped in with all those ‘blocked’ emails in the junk mail filter or worse, you could be reported as a spam.

    • Thanks for your comment Cathy!

      I very much appreciated the affirmation from a professional networker like yourself. I really enjoy reading the your contributions, wonderful materials.

      Permission is indeed vitally important, I’ve made the mistake of assuming in the past only to receive a few angry emails. I deserved them, and have definitely learned my lesson!

      All the best!
      – Chris
