Industry conferences are some of the best networking venues, and we train CLE Solutions associates to make the most of them. The next time you venture out to a conference or similar event, be sure to put these networking tips to good use:

  • Strategically Attend Sessions: It’s great to learn as much as you can at a conference, but the best place to make new connections is the lobby. Stick to this common area as much as you can, and be sure to check it out during breaks in the itinerary. You’ll boost your odds of creating strong connections by making yourself available to all attendees in this way.
  • Prioritize Phone Numbers: We always remind our CLE Solutions team members to make phone numbers their top priorities when they forge new relationships. Business cards are nice to have, but it’s even better to be able to text your new contacts and start building stronger rapport.
  • Reach Out to Keynote Speakers: It’s good to make contact with a speaker during an event, but you’ll probably have to wait in line to do so, and your conversation will be brief. We at CLE Solutions recommend that you reach out to these influencers through email after the conference and include a few specific notes about how much you enjoyed the speech.
