Without doubt professional variety plays an important part of our network.
Without variety there would be a particularly dull meeting, this is why we invite our guests.
The same can be said for attitude … and when the positive attitude mixes with diversity the magic of word of mouth referral has the potential to bring dividends for all
That is unless you have one too many negative amongst you.
One such minus, convincingly portrayed by our network newbie, cook and ‘sausage-sizzler’ extraordinaire, Matt Le-Fatt!
With attendees low and catering numbers down and with the Le-Fatt toaster left standing the attitude may not be conducive to good networking … unless of course … and this is regardless of catering numbers … we have the appropriate diversity in the room. An attractive presence with the pre-requisite qualifications may be just the antidote for the le-hot Le-Fatt.
How sweet it can be …
So how do we dissuade the rampant Le-Fatt, who with one salacious glance or remark might just poison the network ‘garden’ and cut-short any network recommendations our attractive guest ‘diversity’ may be prepared to pass on?
True, there are many different types of people who look for referral – although should we be selective and invite just the ‘Le-Fatt’ tolerant amongst us? A difficult decision for some … especially when we know that with the right attitude and abundant diversity present, the Net really does Work.
One suggestion is warn the guests, another might be to sack Le-Fatt … or even change venue?
Or it could be simply be a case of … if they don’t listen, we shut the door …
