If you have ever attended a networking event to help promote your business you may well have felt a little intimidated, in a room with a lot of people you did not know and when you look around they all seem to be chatting to each other quite happily.
I attend a lot of these events and I felt just like that at my first few, but with time, practice and a little preparation it becomes much easier and you can get much more out of the business networking events.
I have read an extremely well written guide on businessballs.com, unfortunately I could not find an author name as I would like to read more by the same contributor.
The article covers many different aspects of the networking environment such as
- The elevator pitch

Along with a number of other useful tips. If youthink you may benefit from this article you can read the full thing at http://www.businessballs.com/business-networking.htm
