Keys to making the most of Speed Networking:
1) Bring and distribute your business cards.
Exchange cards with your partner at the beginning of each three-minute session—this can be a time saver. When you exchange cards, take time to read what is on your partner’s card. The other person will see this as interest on your part and, equally important, it will help you remember faces and names later on.

2) Develop an efficient way to introduce yourself.
Consider developing an “elevator pitch”—a response you can give in any situation when someone asks you who you are or what you do. Think about how you want to describe yourself. You could talk about your current position, explain a project you’ve undertaken, or describe your goals for 2019..

3) Contribute to an effective conversation.
Make sure there is an even exchange of dialogue. Pose a question or make a point, and let the other person respond. Ask about the challenges and needs your partner faces in his or her organization or industry. This will give you an opportunity to establish common ground and, if appropriate, to offer ways in which you’ve solved similar problems.

4) Follow up with individuals with whom you made a connection.
If you feel that there is the possibility of furthering a relationship with a contact, express that to the person during your session.

The key to making the most of Speed Networking is to follow up with your contacts over time to develop credible business relationships.

Key Benefits:
- The main purpose of the speed networking is to meet lots of new contacts in a short space of time.
- Helps maximize your time at the forum making sure you meet the people that can offer you real business opportunities
-If you take into account each participants business contacts, you are potentially connecting with hundreds of relevant industry people
-A great icebreaker, the informal format takes the awkwardness out of traditional networking, it is a fun and easy way to meet a wide variety of people
