Over the last 20 years I’ve had regular experience with business networking. Attending events all over Australia and photographing them in Sydney New South Wales.
Countless business opportunities for both myself and for others in my network have resulted in them being essential in learning about new ideas and meeting relevant contacts.
So this page will summarise using both our own experience and research on how you can take advantage of attending networking events. Not only from the perspective of attending but also being an observer from behind the camera.
With so much in the corporate world happening in the digital domain these days a professional can easily get rusty on the interpersonal techniques and making the most of these events and lose sight of the idea behind why you are there.
First the basics of what you probably know already, but if you’re new to the sector or wanting to improve your skills and understanding, read the descriptions. Otherwise skip.
