Networking is the professional equivalent of exercise. Some people love it, and get energized just thinking about it. I am not one of those people. I know networking (and exercise) is good for me, but I would rather be doing something else. After all, I am pretty active on LinkedIn. Isn’t that enough?
It is not. Like exercise, to get the most out of networking you have to put in the time, and that is face-time. Seventy-seven percent of people prefer in-person conferences not just for the presentations, but because they can read body language and facial expressions. Also, 85% of all open job positions are filled via professional networks. Thus the larger your network, the more career possibilities you have. There is a lot at stake.
All this said, if you are looking to flex your networking muscle, or just looking to get back into the networking gym, we would love to see you at the Corra Forum in NYC on September 14th. The forum is focused on retail, featuring a panel discussion with personalization experts from John Hardy, Club Monaco, Mustela, Dia&Co, and Whole Latte Love. There is live Q&A, and discussions afterwards.
Everything is going down at the rooftop bar at the Gansevoort Park Avenue hotel. It has a great view, great food, and great cocktails. Now that you know all the important facts, reserve your spot here.
