Four tips for a better networking event

Speak Schmeak

Here's a quick tip for making your networking event a success: Get rid of the tables. Recently I attended a networking mixer at a conference, at the end of the day, in a room that had been set up banquet-style for earlier breakfast and lunch events. Unfortunately, because the room was set with tables -- and there was no structure to the event -- a person would come in, get a brownie and coffee and sit down at a table with the same people she had been talking to all day.

Speak Schmeak

I have two clients who are event planners. They create amazing social and corporate events as well as weddings that would charm your socks off. If you've ever been to a conference, a wedding, a large fundraiser, a political rally, or a memorial service, chances are an event planner was involved. All event planners have one thing in common: No matter how complicated or difficult the planning and organization, they make the event appear seamless.

No one person could attend all the panels , go to all the surrounding events and exhibits, or meet all the interesting people who flock to the area every year. I was filming during a lot of SXSW, so a lot of the programming that I went to happened outside of the actual event. One of my favorites was 20×2, an event where 20 people each tell 2-minute stories. So, the presentation industry needs to be way more pronounced at the event.
