The most obvious way is to become a speaker at networking
events. This means that everyone gets to know you because
you are the person standing at the front of the room.
During your talk you can explain exactly what you are
looking for and get interested people to approach you
after your talk. At the Berkshire Property Meet I took
the opportunity to talk about a number of things that
I am looking for and asked people to fill in an interest
form. Now my team are busy following up all of the 180
people or so who expressed an interest in at least one
of the things I mentioned from the front of the room.
There is no way I would have been able to connect with
that many people if I had just attended the event.
the idea of standing up in front of a room of strangers
and giving a talk absolutely terrifies you, then you
are not alone. Most people fear public speaking. It’s
not actually as hard as you may think and it is a very
good skill to develop. In fact I am thinking of running
some speaker skills training in the New Year as people
keep on asking me if I can help them.
other way to get some STAGE TIME is to get involved
with running a networking event.
You could either be the host of the event or one the
team who helps to organise it. Either way, all of the
people who come to the networking event will get to
know you. If you don’t have a networking event
close to where you live, then why not set one up? This
can be a lot of work but when done properly the results
can make it well worthwhile.
