Networking is made of two things…

  1. Communication – How you deliver your message. Basically, all this means is how well you are able to talk. This includes your verbal and non-verbal skills.
  • Intent – What do you want out of the interaction. In short, ask yourself what you want to get out of meeting others. Next, ask yourself what you would be willing to give in return.
