I recently gave a talk to an undergraduate business class on the importance of and best practices for networking and it was amazing the response and feedback that I received from the students. They were so appreciative of the simple yet effective tips and tools that I provided. It was a reminder to me that the small actions that I and others like me who are continually networking take part in every day are very foreign and less natural to most. I am in the process of developing a new talk on the importance of building your personal brand and I will be focusing a good portion of this talk on networking (stay tuned!). In the meantime, I thought it would be great to repost a video that I posted a couple of years ago featuring one of my favorite networkers, Melanie Coburn of Cadre. In this video, Melanie gives great tips on finding the right networking events and how to effectively make connections and build relationships when at these events.
