Networking is one of the key aspects of our event industry, and now with virtual events we have surpassed the geographical barrier, taking networking to a whole new level. However, all of the advantages won’t mean anything unless we know how to create an effective network and how to network intelligently. So, today we are going to talk about how we can use the boon of virtuality to network effectively and intelligently.
So, what is Smart Networking? It is when the platform you are networking on intelligently suggests people you should network with, based on your areas of interest. This helps in ensuring that when you connect you have productive things to discuss and actually make a useful connection. To do so, the first thing the platforms asks is for you to identify your key areas of interest and maybe a few #tags that you follow. Then a smart algorithm helps them identify people who have picked the same interests and #tags to suggest to you as probable connections. Thus, helping you create an effective and intelligent network.
As rightly said by Michele Jennae - “Networking is not just about connecting people. It’s about connecting people with people, people with ideas, and people with opportunities”. And that is what smart networking does for you. So, with virtual events opening up new avenues, it’s time for us to be smart and build a truly intelligent network.
