Attending a business event? How about a little preparation and planning…
Whenever you have a meeting with clients or prospects, there’s a fair chance that you’re going to do some preparation and planning. In fact there is every chance that you will, otherwise you will attend feeling nervous, unprepared and unprofessional – the list is endless!
From my experience, most people attend business events without doing any preparation and planning and then wonder why they are somewhere between nervous all the way through to petrified !.
Consider asking yourself these headline questions before you arrive
Who? What? Where? When? Which? Why? How?
Lets’ focus on Who…
|Else will be going?|
|Should accept the invitation?|
|Else should come with me?|
|Should I be meeting at the event?|
|Else needs to know (socially)?|
|Should I talk to first?|
|Is on the guest list?|
|Follows up relevant contacts?|
