Do you avoid business networking events?

Do you ever feel uncomfortable at business networking events where you hardly know anyone? You are not alone.

That’s why I love this tip on networking from Tim Denning. He was actually referring to what he calls ‘Accidental relationships’ and gave an example from a networking event he attended.

"From my experience, accidental relationships happen when you are vulnerable enough to start a conversation and are not looking to gain anything other than an insight into someone else's world."

This is so different from the advice given by most networking speakers. I totally endorse Tim’s approach. Try it out at one of those networking events you’ve been avoiding. You will feel so much better when you do.

Thanks to Deb Kerrison for sharing this.
