NEWS: We’re Featured in – on Networking

Posted by in Communications, Inspiration, Latest News

I am delighted to be featured in, a leading PR online magazine in the UK, sharing my tips on how to sparkle at networking events.

From Sally Maier-Yip, managing director of marketing agency 11K consulting:

Smile. “Before you speak, remember to smile to the person whose you want to connect with and make them feel welcome. This applies to everyone regardless of your nationality and seniority. What’s more, smiling costs nothing and it works every time, I promise!”

Don’t be awkward. “Don’t start with difficult questions such as ‘What do you think about the speakers?’ or negative comments such as ‘What a horrible venue’, as this might put people off. Go with the flow and relax! You don’t need to make friends with everyone in the room. If you really have nothing to say or don’t feel ease with some of the people in the room, move on.”
