Chamber At Noon ~ Speed Networking
               Chamber At Noon

“ Speed networking “ is a contradiction in terms.
The whole point of networking is to build relationships over time so that people get to know and trust you. The point of speed networking is to
see how many people you can talk to in the shortest possible time. The format may vary but the basic approach is the same, you get 3 minutes
to speak to someone, then you move on and talk to someone else. You don’t have time to ask questions or have a conversation, you just say
your piece. Not very good for building rapport! So should you just avoid these events No! But I’ve found there’s a certain way to approach them
which will be most productive.
Here are my tips to survive – and thrive – in the world of speed Networking.
1. HAVE ONE SPECIFIC GOAL ~ My own goal at these events is to get people to give me their business card so I can send them information on
Chamber membership and a copy of our newsletters. I can build the relationships later through our newsletter or by encouraging them to visit
our website or attend an event.
Once you know the action you want them to take, follow these steps.
2. TELL THEM WHO YOU WORK WITH AND HOW YOU HELP THEM ~ Have a short, simple statement that says, “ This is who I work with and
this is what I do for them .“ Focus on the client, not on yourself. For example, “ I work with business owners who want to get better results from
their networking. I help them to prepare and deliver a compelling marketing message so they get more clients with less effort. “
3. ASK THEM TO TAKE THE ACTION YOU WANT Most people miss this, they end up saying “ Well, that’s me, if you’re interested please give me a
ring. “ You have to tell them what you want them to do. For example, “ I have a free report which reveals the 6 big mistakes people make when
talking about their businesses. Here’s the address you need to get your copy. “
4. HAND THEM SOMETHING TO REINFORCE YOUR MESSAGE ~ Put what you want them to do on the back of your business card then hand
them the card, showing them the back. This way, they are more likely to remember later when they are going through the cards they have
collected. If your card doesn’t have this sort of information on it, give them something that does – a brochure or a specially made postcard.
5. FOLLOW UP ~ This always amazes me – the number of people I meet at networking events who never follow up. They speak to me for 30
seconds, then I never hear from them again. What was the point? When you get back, email everyone you met and remind them of the action
you want them to take, e.g. “ I enjoyed meeting you at the networking event this afternoon and I hope we get the chance to meet again soon.
Mention again what you want them to do because there is a good chance they have forgotten it . Remember it is a combination of: single
message, call to action, visual material to back up message, follow up email after the event.

               As you know, 2011 was an exciting year for us. We opened up a new center, changed the look and
               feel of all of our offices. Our president, 'Dr.O', Dr. Aylin Ozdemir, implemented innovative
               software in our practice as of March 1st that will prepare us for 2014 Healthcare programs and other
               related legal procedures. Furthermore, we will offer faster, more efficient and better service. Dr. O is
               Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of
               Pediatrics. Dr. Ozdemir is multi-lingual, and has a special interest in childhood behavioral problems,
               academic difficulties, ADHD, allergies, asthma, and genetics. Dr. O is certified in Integrative Mental
Health and Botanicals Foundations from The University of Arizona of Medicine at the Arizona Health Sciences
Center with the world renowned Dr. Andrew Weil, at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine. Dr. O is a
fellow of the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and she would like to invite you to the first
fully Integrated Pediatric Center of its kind in Florida. Dr. O has been recognized as a Patients' Choice physician.
The Patients' Choice honor is given to her as a reflection of her patients' continued appreciation and praise for the
quality of care and service she provides. In fact, of the nation's 720,000 active physicians, only 5 percent were
accorded this honor by their patients in 2011. Dr. O is so highly regarded by her patients that they feel the need to
talk to others about the positive influence of her work; she received both “Compassionate Physician Award” and
“Physician of the Year” in 2011. This notation of her distinction as a 2011 Patients' Choice physician will be
prominently displayed in Dr. O’s profile on a broad collection of web sites, including Patients' Choice, Vitals,
Google, and a variety of managed care sites as well as top health insurance sites.
