Chapter 8. Preparing for Networking Events > Prepare to Meet Your Targets

Prepare to Meet Your Targets

Before the event, practice your 30-second elevator speech. Remember, use no more than three sentences to break the ice, introduce yourself professionally, and create an opportunity to stay in touch with the listener.

When you arrive, take a few minutes to get your bearings after entering the room. Center yourself. Scan the room for familiar faces and networking targets. Quickly devise a plan for working the room, based on your overall networking goals and target list.
