How you can network both online and offline, after the event!

That’s right, this is the last and final step to complete your networking training, if you will.

Online:

  • Create an event summary blog post with photos and/or videos of the event that also highlights the events success ie money raised, people in attendance, connections made, etc, lists all the event stakeholders involved ie speakers, sponsors, etc. and/or any major event takeaways. This blog posts also serves as an asset you can use to promote the next event.
  • Tweet and thank sponsors, suppliers, partners and speakers for having attended your event. Make sure to mention their twitter handles and names in your tweet. A benefit to creating a blog post summary first is that it helps the attendees and others in attendance relive the positive experience.
