What are the indispensable skills required by an entrepreneur? Drive, ambition, business nous? Yes, a big tick should go against all those. A good head for figures? Maybe. The ability to create a network of like-minded people, contacts and potential clients? Essential. Unless you can crack the skill of networking then running your own business may become a pretty lonely (and unprofitable) experience.
Successful networking isn’t returning from an event with a stack of business cards, having given out loads of your own cards in turn. How many times have you looked through your cards and had absolutely no recollection of the people who gave them to you? You need to meet the right people and make a good impression on them. Otherwise you’ll just be another card in someone else’s stack.
There’s a breed of people who seem to know everyone, who have a knack for striking up conversations with complete strangers and making their acquaintance. They even have a name: they’re connectors. But for the rest of us, networking can be a painful business. The prospect of working a room, pressing the flesh of people we don’t know can be a torture, not a pleasure.
But you can become a good networker, even if you aren’t a social butterfly. It’s a skill you can learn, just like how to make a pitch or understand a balance sheet.
