Networking can be daunting and for introverts, mortifying. I'm involved in many community events, fundraisers and business so connecting with others is necessary. Social media platforms have taken some heat off the angst but falls short as a substitute. Research shows connection or rather, authentic connection is the connection that truly counts. Whether you're in business, an influencer, or community sector, hollow networking of which much of the networking feels like, doesn't work. Customers, clients and the community are too savvy for networkers to get away with their oft-intention of 'what's-in-it-for-me'.

Have you been left hanging after the other person made an assessment of you rather than was interested in you?

Have you felt the other person shut down the conversation when you're of no purpose to their agenda?
Have you been put on - when someone spews forth their creds - hogging the whole conversation then duly walks off no sooner you talk?

Have you been forgotten and have to reintroduce yourself to the same person on more-than-too-many occasions?

Draw the distinction. Be memorable and authentic. Grow satisfaction, success & profits. Engage.
