The great thing about networking is that it gives you the opportunity to talk to a lot of people. The problem is that it requires you to talk to a lot of people, and that can take a lot of time. The more you network and the more effectively you network, the more full your calendar will get. You will have two choices: start saying no to people or spend all your time in networking meetings. But there is a third way to connect with everyone you want to engage with and not wipe out your entire calendar. In this episode, Michael Whitehouse, a professional connector, will share how he uses Open Virtual Coffees and informal virtual networking events to continue making connections without giving up all of his time.
