After attending a networking event, many people overlook the simple task of the follow up. This is the most crucial part in networking and the most simple and easy thing to do. A genuine email addressing the person you met, thanking them for their time and mentioning a few points from your conversation goes a long way.
A Forbes article posted on February of 2016 mentioned that networking and building genuine relationships are like exercising the brain. The more neural activity is stimulated the stronger the connections are. Similarly, the more we network and follow up, the stronger our connections will be.
Networking Leads… to strong connections.
