At a recent Referral Institute conference, I was talking with Tiffanie Kellog and Renia Carsillo, two Referral Institute trainers from Florida, and we were talking about the “Ten Commandments for Working a Networking Mixer.” To our surprise, we each share the same favorite when it comes to the Networking Mixer Commandments yet the reasons why it’s our favorite are quite different.
Tiffanie is an introvert, I’m a situational extrovert, and Renia is an introverted go-getter. However the “Act Like a Host, Not a Guest” Commandment provides unique solutions in making networking more comfortable and natural for all three of these personality types and in this brief video we discuss exactly how.
If you’re interested in learning about the Ten Commandments of Working a Networking Mixer, come back on Monday, October 1st to find out more. In the meantime, let us know what you think of this video. Are you more similar to Tiffanie, Renia, or me when it comes to your personality type? Are you going to try the tactic of acting like a host at your next event? If so, please revisit this page and leave a comment after your event to let us know how it went–we’d love to hear about your experience.
