Is this scenario familiar when it comes to networking?

You feel pretty confident walking into a room and have little trouble chatting to existing and new contacts.

‘’BUT how effective are you turning those ‘chats’ into real business opportunities?’’

The 3 key skills needed to get the results you want from your investment of time are;

1.  Asking relevant, intelligent, quality questions.  When you’re good at this you...

Show you are genuinely  interested in the other person- the key to relationship building Discover  the information you need to qualify if this is a potential opportunity Get good answers to see how and if the relationship can be progressed

“You can’t create need but you can identify opportunity”

2. Listening and responding in the appropriate manner

Can really impress when that question has never been asked before Ensures you are really want to understand the other person’s thoughts and views

3.  Making that all-important phone call to arrange the meeting

The vast majority of my audiences admit they struggle making that follow up call.

“They won’t remember me” “I don’t want to be too pushy” “Not sure what to say”

There is a long list of excuses but the simple reason the call isn’t made is fear of rejection

But if you did spot something in your conversation where you believed it was worth following up and you don’t, then dare we suggest attending any networking event could all have been a waste of time?
