Hey good looking … smile

It’s January … you are dreading the call to the local Networking soirée.

Are you the kind of person wishing there was an easy way to break the ice and so avoid those uncomfortable silences prior the feeling of … ‘I can relax now.’

Smile, you are certainly not alone.

Study the following FORM Guide beforehand, dispel the anxiety and be ready for any of the awkwardness that may come with breaking the January conversational ice:

F = have some Fun…. smile.

It’s the shortest distance between two people and easiest way to break the ice. Your first time acquaintance may be looking for just the same support. Smile as you introduce yourself:

Ask how the journey was .. ‘travel far for networking?’

O =so what do you do, what’s your Occupation?’

Far nicer to swap cards (and do swap cards!) after you’ve established parity!

R = ‘is networking part of your Recreation?’

Perhaps there is a common opportunity in recreation outside of networking? Play golf maybe?

M = ‘what brings you here, whats the Motivation?’

Many colleagues find January a challenging time when taking the first steps to network success.

Smile and have some fun while studying the FORM Guide as you grow the trust through networking.

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. It's an uncomplicated life, for the past ten years I've been away from the 'big smoke' and I consider the decision to relocate my business to the country has been the best move of my career. I write and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development, I consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could be a biography, or simply bringing a diary to life. I tend not to advertise my business, word of mouth has always been kind so it's no surprise that I do spend a couple of days per week networking. Peer collaboration can be very rewarding. Therefore if you'd like to join me any Wednesday midday or Thursday morning coffee, please get in touch, I'd love to meet you and perhaps help in any way possible. Thank you for stopping by the website. engage, develop, grow ... with Go! charliekenny@live.co.uk
