Understanding how to Network: going from virtual networking to meeting IRL (in real life)
– Margarita Ibbott (LinkedIn | Twitter)
This session incorporates virtual networking with in real life networking. How? First we will discuss how to find networking events using LinkedIn. This session covers: finding networking events to attend, signing up and the understanding how to search an attendee’s profile so that when you actually attend the networking event, you will know how to break the ice.
1. searching events
2. researching profiles of attendees
3. finding areas in common making connecting possible
With years of networking under her belt, Margarita Ibbott, social media trainer and self professed ‘connector’, will take you through the steps that she uses to connect with people at a networking event.
She will discuss how to take the information that you have found on LinkedIn about the attendees to open up a conversation and meet people at an event with the ultimate objective: meeting new clients.
