While at SXSW last week along with 20,000 other people, I had the pleasure of meeting just the man who could answer those questions – Ambassador Bruny. His latest project is “The New Art of Conference Networking: Hashtags to Handshakes.”
I chatted with him at the Copyblogger party and he gave some quick tips on how to network effectively!
Just to recap, here are his tips:
Focus: What are your goals outside of the conference?
Engage: Connect with people before the conference. Reach out online
Attend: Find ways to be helpful in person.
Follow Through: Follow up with people after the conference.
