So how can you get the most out of the gatherings you attend this year?

Networking can help you generate new sales leads, deepen connections with existing contacts - leading to more business - and learn useful information about your markets, resulting in more relevant services.

So why do so many professionals and entrepreneurs do it in such an ad-hoc way?  Karl Smith of Business Networking South Africa explains how strategic networking could give you an edge over the competition.

I train and coach many individuals and speak at many conferences every year and I always ask, "Who has a networking strategy?"  Would it surprise you that more than 80 per cent of people and businesses I ask do not have a networking strategy?

WHAT DOES YOUR ATTITUDE SAY ABOUT YOU IN BUILDING YOUR NETWORK AND PERSONAL BRAND?

We’ve all heard countless statements about the significant part our attitude plays in everyday life. The connection between attitude and success is undeniable.

Yet, most networkers underestimate the power of attitude in networking and building their personal brands. In my speaking, training and conference sessions, I ignore superficial motivational and expert speak as the journey to success cannot be sustained through superficial tips and social niceties.

I normally open networking and other presentations with this statement: Successful people (including potential networking partners, prospective clients, employers etc) feel sorry for people who are not winning with themselves … they smell desperation and hopelessness, they instinctively know when someone is directionless and see when someone is in search.

It is for this reason that I passionately encourage networkers or sales professionals to take responsibility for their emotional well-being.

NETWORKING IS DEAD

I had the privilege to address dealmakers at Africa’s largest Dental Indaba held in Cape Town. The message underpinning my highly interactive and pragmatic sessions was simple yet profound: As we move through the rest of 2013 and beyond, there is a lot to think about and understand as it relates to the world of networking and business relationship development.

In my humble opinion, based on my own experience and life-long studying, networking as we know it today has been dying a slow death since the dawn of the global financial crisis.

And, if you think that you’re going to continue doing what you have been doing as it relates to business networking, you’re making a big mistake. In fact Albert Einstein calls it “insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Now don’t get offended by my statement. I really don’t mean any harm. It’s just true.

difference80% of networkers are men. 

As women become an ever increasing force in the business world, how do their networking needs and preferences compare with men’s?  Do men and women network in the same way?

“Research shows that men don't actually network the way women define networking," says inspirational business speaker, Karl Smith, creator of a comprehensive networking, personal branding and referral system.
