Some key tips:
–Think through your goals before the event
–Use simple icebreakers to start a conversation
–Learn about the people with whom you speak
–Find out how you can help them then do what you say you are going to do
–When it comes to your pitch, speak like it’s your grandmother and focus on the benefits provided and problems solved with your product or service
–Always follow up!
