    old school- networking strategies

    xavier Newbie
      Team- what is a proven strategy in face-to-face networking situations, such as chamber mixers, to either get a sales lead or to meet the point person for a coveted project? suggestions?

          As others have stated here in other posts and I know from experience, the best networking is done when you care about the other person and are willing to listen and build a relationship.

          One of the main things that makes our network at CEO Space different is that we teach everyone to find out what the other persons project or business is and to find out how they can help them.

          Not everyone is your client, but you can connect up other people.

          And as Zig Ziglar said "if you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want."

          So instead of walking up to everyone with your pitch, find out about them.
