Tips on Business Networking

The Chatswood Chamber offers some suggestions to help make our networking functions a success.

  • Attend as many functions as possible. You will get from these functions what you put into them.
  • Wear your name tag on the right, so that when you shake hands your name is easily read.
  • Bring plenty of business cards to all functions. They can be your most valuable tool so do not hesitate to exchange them.
  • When you receive a business card, make sure write any relevant information on the back, as soon as you return home or to the office.
  • Be mobile in the crowd – MIX AND MINGLE!
  • Establish a goal for the number of new business contacts/cards you will have at the end of a function and do not hesitate to ask associates to introduce you to others.
  • Plan for success and follow up the next day with an email or a phone call.

If you are an existing member – try coming to more functions – you’ll be surprised what a difference being there makes. If you aren’t a member – now is the time to join. And grow your business.
