Top Tips for a Successful Networking Event
- The stresses of throwing the perfect networking event can be a lot but we are at hand to lighten the load. First things first – What is the purpose of your event? Maybe you’re looking to encourage more referrals to your company or are trying to build new connections with similar businesses. Once you know what your aim is then this can inform all your subsequent decisions like the amount of guests or event venue.
- Next you need to consider the style of the event, for example; formal or informal? Do you want a theme or to keep it simple? Remember you’re trying to get people talking so give them something to talk about! Hire some networking entertainment for some excitement and atmosphere or book a special activity for everyone to partake in. If you’re looking for formality a wine tasting class would be perfect or if you’re after some lively fun you can hire an illusionist to baffle your guests, both these work great as ice breakers. If you want a theme you can incorporate some entertainment for that extra flair.
- When you have sorted the event particulars then you will need to think about the guests, you want to build up some excitement and hype leading up the event so they will stay interested. For example send out emails and keep them informed of the event by mentioning the venue or the entertainment, if you show some enthusiasm it could catch!
- Then when everything is done you can relax and look forward to mingling and networking your way to new opportunities.
