The FPA CT-Fairfield County Chapter continues to look for opportunities for advisors who are new to our profession to learn from their peers. Towards this end, we will be hosting our next FREE NexGen+ After Hours event on Wednesday, May 15th, 5:30pm to 7:00pm, at Rothbard Ale + Larder in Westport. After a half hour of informal networking, we'll dive right into our "13 Ideas to Supercharge Your Networking!" program.
Fact is, there are right ways and wrongs way to network. Here's another fact: To be successful at networking, one must understand exactly what true networking is.
To quote Andrew Vest's article, How to Network the Right Way: Eight Tips, published in the Young Entrepreneur Council Community Voice (July 28, 2014), "True networking occurs when there's an understanding that everyone in the room has equal value. In its purest form, it's about people enjoying other people, communicating passions and connecting with others who share those passions. It's about listening, figuring out what others need and connecting them with people you think can help, without any designs for personal gain. The most successful networkers build genuine relationships and give more than they receive. They go beyond thinking, "What's in it for me?" to ask "How can I help?"
Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn how to network the right way. Thanks to our presenter, Derrek Metz, CRPC, a Registered Principal and Financial Planner with Barnum Financial Group, by the end of this interactive session, you will walk away with 13 real-world, practical tips that you can use anywhere, anytime.
