Networking Conference Opener

It’s a Jungle Out There!  Make It An Adventure!

Networking skill is widely recognized as a distinguishing characteristic of top performers and a major determinant of both personal and professional success.

Networking Conference Opener attendees develop networking strategies to make every encounter a positive adventure, and every event productive . . . including this one.

Research shows:

  • One week after a seminar, the average person remembers only 7% of what was said.
  • Attendees consistently report the most valuable thing they take from any conference:
  • The new friendships and professional alliances they have made.

Convention Fever: Attendees from across the world meet in a new and exciting setting where they are faced with overwhelming presentation options and activities. Many feel compelled to pack in as many formal events as possible, running from one to the other without much planning. Some, feeling more secure with people they already know, leave without making any new or enduring connections. Most attend a variety of stimulating and informative programs and events, dragging home a bundle of conference collaterals, seminar notes, session tapes or videos, books, and maybe even a stack of business cards–with which they do nothing. They may be hard-pressed to identify what they brought from the convention that will really help them in their lives and in their work.
