I guess you all know by now that networking is on my mind! Last night I attended a networking event run by Internations in Prague. A fantastic venue and an ideal opportunity to meet other members of Prague’s diverse expat community.
But it got me to thinking. This particular group is about social networking. Should we treat social networking events (physical ones, not an exchange on Twitter or Facebook) differently to business ones? Is it okay to spend a lot of time talking business?
It’s kind of hard to know why people went. Some I spoke to really wanted to make new friends. Others seemed quite business focused.
I’d love to hear what you think about striking the balance at these kinds of events …
