"Why are New Englanders so rude" is the number one ranked searched term related to the people in our region. This common misconception, I believe, is due to a culture that has taught us to be efficient with our own time and to respect others. The flip side to this efficiency is commonly seen at many networking events. Plain and simple: most New Englanders don't know how to network. They are too polite to waste someone else's time, and often wait for someone to walk up to them. Learn how to easily become the person that everyone wants to talk to, and the financial and personal benefits that come with it. Event Topic: Networking For New Englanders: Make a Friend & Some Money Too
At the event, Tom Cafarella of Ocean City Development, will discuss:
1. What networking is(and what it is not)
2. Why you always need to network
3. How to make networking completely comfortable
4. Determining where you should network and how to find the events
