Choosing networking events

Question
How do I choose which networking events to attend? 
Answer
The best way to choose networking events is to match possibilities with your business goals. These questions will help you decide which events to attend:

1. Does the topic address an issue your prospects and clients face? Could you bring back some ideas for them?

2. Do you want to meet the speakers? Be sure to introduce yourself at the end, get their business cards, and follow up later.

3. Does the event relate to a new idea you haven’t had time to focus on? Use it as a catalyst to accellerate your knowledge and start focusing.
