Ready, set, network!

The QLD Quick Bite event on 5th of December was a great way to celebrate the end of the year with some networking and drinks.  Generously hosted by ABB’s St Ann Office we enjoyed hearing from ABB’s Country Communications Manager Eva Ford-Murphy who shared eight simple points for effective networking:

  1.  Be strategic
  2. Understand your elevator pitch
  3. Be curious
  4. Build your networking muscle
  5. It’s awkward for everyone
  6. People love to talk about themselves
  7. Have an ice-breaker
  8. Remember to follow-up

We then enjoyed a networking activity – the Elevator Pitch – where we took away key tactics on how to engage people and make an impression quickly:

  • Share something you’re passionate about that is non-work related
  • Make a statement that invite for question
  • Include what your ‘value add’

Many thanks to ABB for hosting this terrific end of year end.
