Someone I met recently used an expression that I got a big kick out of yet it really resonated with me at the same time. Talking about a networker she knew, she said to me, “The guy is a Networking Vampire!”
Watch this video to find out what exactly a “Networking Vampire” is and then come back and weigh in on how to spot them (they can often be very elusive–do you have a trick/strategy for discovering them?) and what to do about them once you identify them.
Also, if you have any interesting stories about experiences you’ve had with Networking Vampires, share them in the comment section . . . ve vant to hear dem! Bwah-ahh-aahh-aaahhh-aaaahhhh!! 😉
