Now’s the Season to be Networking
As you consider all the parties and gatherings you will be going to this holiday season, are you remembering that this is a great opportunity to network? Do you have the tools to do it effectively?
Make sure you have networking business cards made up that you can pass on to people. These should be 2-sided cards that tell someone at a glance who you are and what you offer. An example opening might be: Senior Financial Manager experienced in fueling startups, turnarounds and high-growth organizations. This could be followed by key competencies: mergers & acquisitions; capital acquisition; budgeting & planning, etc. This way these cards can be passed out easily and unobtrusively to your friends and their contacts.
