There are a few key strategies anyone can use to elevate his or her networking game. Glen explained that some of the simplest techniques are the most effective when it comes to adding new contacts. The firm’s associates have become top-flight networkers because they keep things simple during big industry events of all kinds.
Small talk is one key tool that can make networking easier.
