Met some great people.
Swapped some business cards.
Heard some new ideas.
And got a little bit inspired.
So what do you do now?
You've been there. Done that. Networking ticked off on the career to do list?
Because unless you actually do something just going to a networking event is kind of an academic exercise.
4. Act on your ideas or the something you learned. It's inspiring to get ideas, it's powerful to act on them. If someone makes a suggestion, you hear a tip that you think you can use or you get a brilliant idea - act on them. Not everything that works for someone else will work for you but when you do try something new and it works - it feels like magic!
5. Book in your next networking event - and keep those connections, contacts, tips and ideas coming. Career development is a continual process and there are always new things we can learn!
Must go - I have some Linked In invitations to send to people I met this week.
Thanks for the chat!
