Ask the Fedora: Follow Up With Everyone After a Networking Event!

This week on Ask the Fedora: Follow Up With Everyone After a Networking Event!

Transcript:

Welcome to another exciting episode of Ask The Fedora. I’m your host, Jarrod Goldsmith.

Let’s say you’re at a networking event, but you met someone a month ago, but you forgot to follow up with them. Go up to them! Say to them, “Hi … We met at the last event and I’m really sorry, but I haven’t had a chance to follow up with you. Can we still go for coffee?” At least acknowledge that you didn’t have the time to meet with them. This is a good exercise – take the time to follow up with everyone you’ve met, even if you’re not sure you’d do business with them. If you forget it make for an embarrassing conversation next time, but suck it up.

Thanks for watching. Happy Networking!

Your Networking Survival Kit

Today our #AskTheFedora answers the question of what to keep in your networking survival kit!

Transcript:

How many times have you been to a networking event and a person says “I forgot my business cards or they’re in my other purse”. Always leave an extra stack in your car just in case so you can run back and get some. There was one event where I forgot my hat because I biked to the event. Eighteen different people came up to me and asked me where was my hat. Ever since then I keep it in the car. As a survival kit I always suggest keeping a little pill bottle of multi-vitamins and vitamin C; bottled water, extra business cards and your name tag. But make sure your name tag doesn’t get scratched or damaged in any way so put them into a little box. And then you’ll never run out of the essential networking necessities.
