For those of us who are not natural extroverts, this slideshare presentation from Sacha Chua has some useful tips on how to approach networking. I think Sacha has hit the nail on the head in identifying that many people shy away form networking because it is perceived as a “selling yourself” activity and instead she offers an alternative way of seeing networking as about helping, sharing and learning from others.
I also really like the simple stick men presentation look which makes you realise that making your presentation visually appealing doesn’t have to be about including colourful diagrams and professional videos.
