My First Incursion Into Speed Networking by Mariel Martinez

 

Lately, virtually EVERYONE is talking about networking. We are surrounded by so many web pages that remind you how important is to belong to a networking group (whether is career, social or hobby orientated) if we are not part of it, it’s easy to feel that we’re missing out.

 

One can obtain so much information and guidance from people who know certain topics so much better than us. Networking is also incredibly useful for developing business relationships. One never knows what the outcome would be by simply showing up at certain event...

 

But have you experienced “LIVE NETWORKING”?

 

Today, I took part in a “Speed Networking” event organised by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. I was attracted the concept of “Speed” for this event, purely because I believe that it doesn’t take a lot of time to understand what a Company is about. A few minutes should be enough to get the core idea and then you can decide which Company can be beneficial to you in Business Terms.

 

I also liked the fact that none of us were competitors. Everyone came from a different industry (Law, Architecture, Artists, Motor, etc...) I met some lovely people and (bonus) made a few contacts that I can be very mutually beneficial in the future.

 

Networking is something for open and sociable minds... Is it for you?
