The Art of Networking: Smile
It’s the easiest thing to do but we often forget to do it. You probably smile whenever entering your networking meeting and greeting people – it’s natural. But, about 30 seconds into the event, your smile is dwindling, and you don’t even realize it. Forty-eight percent of all Americans feel that a smile is the most memorable feature after first meeting someone.
Wouldn’t you like people to think of you in a positive and upbeat way? While smiling is important, you don't want to have a cheesy, forced or nervous one plastered across your face, so try to be genuine. – even a small grin can go a long way.
