Network with Forward Momentum Using International Networking Week

INW-LogoIf you’re like many businesspeople, you may have made a New Years resolution to expand your contact base. If you’re like the majority of people who make resolutions, you’ve likely already hit a road block. For those with a resolution to expand your network, don’t lose your enthusiasm.

International Networking Week 2016 starts today, and this is a great opportunity to jump start your expanded network. For this ninth annual International Networking Week, we’ve encouraged business professionals to invite the younger generation of businesspeople to their networking events, and to host additional events in honor of this initiative.

No matter how you plan to participate in International Networking Week, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Introduce new people to the group. If you’ve invited a visitor to your event or regular networking meeting, make sure you introduce them to the rest of the group. It’s common courtesy to make sure a guest you invited feels welcome in the group.
  • Bring plenty of business cards. International Networking Week is not the time to be stingy with the business cards! You never know how many people you may meet, and who you will end up building a connection with.
  • Never stop your networking push. International Networking Week is a great annual excuse to meet new business professionals, but when the week ends you should still be sharpening your skills. Networking happens 365 days a year, not just the first week of February.

Welcome to International Networking Week® 2015!

This week marks the 9th annual celebration of International Networking Week® which is recognized each year by thousands of people around the world.

International Networking Week is about celebrating the key role that networking plays in the development and success of business around the world.  It is about creating an awareness relating to the process of networking.  Not just any kind of networking, but what I call “relationship networking”–an approach to doing business based on building long-term, successful, genuine relationships with people strategically through the networking process.

International Networking Week has been acknowledged by many governmental organizations (including a joint resolution of the California State Assembly and Senate) and is celebrated in many countries across the globe.  Start the new year out with more business by using this week to build your networking skills and expand the opportunities within your reach.  If you belong to any networking groups, be sure to tell them that this is International Networking Week (Feb 2-6).

Please feel free to share this video with others and show it at your networking meetings this week.
