Networking checklist

Question
Is there some kind of a checklist for how to prepare for a networking event? 
Answer
Here are some networking tips that will help you prepare for any networking opportunity:

- Take plenty of business cards - more than you think you need.

- If crass commercialism is expected, take brochures, if you have them. However, in many events this is not considered appropriate.

- Take at least two pens (one for you and one to lend), and a note pad.

- Wear a jacket with pockets. Place incoming cards in one pocket, and outgoing cards in another.

- Wear a positive, open and generous attitude.
