4 Steps to Easy Networking at Events

4 Steps to Easy Networking at Events

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

  While most people look forward to the next corporate event, there are some that have a fear of them and find it hard to engage with new people. If you find that you’re in this category and are having a hard time networking at events, here are 4 steps you can take to make the whole process much easier. Be Confident Tap into your inner confidence to help start up conversations with others and dress appropriately to let your personality and your character shine through. Have some business cards on hand and share them with others following a conversation. Try to display as much confidence as possible since this is the one attribute that people will notice most when meeting you at events. Find out Who Will Be There It will be a confidence boost to find out who is going to be at the event. This way you’ll know ahead of time what you’ll be walking into and can plan ahead for it. The more information you know the more you can plan for the event and be ready for it. You can even look at the social media platforms of the people that will be attending so that you can get a heads up regarding the type of conversations to have with them. Go Ahead and Sit down with Others Don’t be afraid to sit down at a table where others are relaxing and then get engaged in the conversation. Once you make the move to sit down and mingle, you’ll find it easy to get involved with the topics being discussed. Find out where the cafeteria or bar is and make your move there. This is the place where people will be easily approachable since they will be more relaxed while drinking or eating. Collect Business Cards When you meet other people at an event that you want to connect with, ask for a business card if they don’t offer one. Then, take a moment to discreetly write down a few words about this person so that you can put the face to the name later. This may be an important contact for you down...

Planning a Retreat When you’re planning a retreat you’ll need to consider the goals of your business. Would you like to build up the trust between the team members or encourage thought provoking conversations between employees? When you’re planning your retreat, it’s best to formulate these goals ahead of time so that they can be addressed. Once you have formulated your goals feel free to call us at Toronto Event Planners.

Choosing the Venue The right venue will give you the tools you need the most to keep employees focused on teamwork and creativity. Some examples of retreat activities include rope climbing, archery and lake activities. You’ll find different venues in your local area offering these types of teambuilding activities. When employees engage in rope climbing it will build on communication, trust and problem solving with a team effort. Lake activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking help with communication skills, leadership abilities and independent thinking.

If you’re planning a work Holiday party it can be added stress with your boss breathing down your neck and expecting a perfect event.

Business trips can come up at a moment’s notice. One day you’re sitting comfortably in your office and the next day you’re expected halfway across the world to attend an urgent meeting. There are so many things to do and coordinate that it feels quite overwhelming. As well, it’s important that you do everything right so that you can get to this meeting on time without having to deal with any issues along the way. Whether you have a business trip come up out of the blue or you have one looming in the future, it’s time to call a destination management company to help you deal with the details. Handling the Travel Plans You’ll need to make sure that your travel plans include the flight, an airport pickup, and drop-off as well as travel arrangements while in the city. Just booking flights can become a major headache when you’re looking for a reasonable price and corresponding flight times. When you hire a destination management company for your business trip this can all be managed for you so that your travel plans are the least of your concerns. Booking the Hotel The event management company will book a hotel in the right part of town so that you’ll be close to everything you need.

Once you have determined that an upcoming event needs to take place it’s time to hire an event planner to help with the organization, planning, and execution of your event. In order to make sure that all of the essentials are handled properly you’ll need to hire an effective and experienced planner that you can trust completely. Here are some of the essential ingredients you should look for in a planner to make sure that your event goes off without a hitch. 1. Experience Look for an event planner that has a lot of experience planning different types of events. The more experience the better.

The Trust Factor You’re going to be putting your event in the hands of another team. You’ll need to know that you can absolutely trust this company in terms of handling your event and your budget.

At Toronto Event Organizers we are more than willing to show you our credentials and provide a list of references that we have worked with in the past. 3.
