In today's business world networking is pretty much what it's all about. It's becoming more and more evident that in order to progress in your career and be successful, you need to be a good and competent networker.
Networking may seem scary to some (including me) but it's very much like everything else in life that initially seems scary - practice makes perfect. The more networking events you attend and general networking activity you do, the more confident you will become both in yourself and what you are saying to people.
There are some, like Rachael Bews, who are born with a natural talent for networking and possess all the required skills to be successful in networking. Myself and Rachael went through university together and graduated at the same time and she is now a Marketing, Communications and Editorial Freelancer. Check out her brilliant website here.
As she is so gifted in this area, I thought she would be the perfect person to ask a few questions and hopefully provide anyone who is anxious about networking with some help and encouragement.
In the video below I ask Rachael 5 key questions about networking:
1. What is networking?
2. What are the benefits of networking?
3. Are there any particular industries where networking is considered essential?
4. What role does social media have in networking?
5. What are your top 5 tips for networking?
