How to become a master networker

Define your goals

Before you dive into the world of networking, it is crucial to be clear about your professional goals: What are you trying to achieve? What kind of connections would be most beneficial to you? By having a clear understanding of your objectives, you will be able to focus your efforts more effectively.

Cultivate your social skills

Networking is about building relationships, and social skills are key to this process. Practice active listening, ask meaningful questions and show interest in the people you interact with. Also, work on your ability to clearly communicate who you are and what you do in a concise and persuasive way. Here are 5 innovative ways to network in a Coworking space.

Participate in relevant events and activities

Whether it’s attending conferences, seminars, trade fairs, afterworks or industry-specific networking events, take every opportunity to meet new people and make connections.

At LOOM, we regularly organise events and activities that facilitate networking among our members. Find out more about these events and activities here.

Maintain your network

Networking is not just about making new connections; it is also about nurturing and maintaining existing relationships. Stay in touch with your contacts, whether through regular emails, informal meetings or interactions on professional social networks such as LinkedIn.

Offer value to your network

Reciprocity is fundamental to effective networking. Look for ways to offer value to people in your network, whether it’s sharing useful resources, offering advice or connecting them with relevant opportunities. The more you value your connections, the more they will be willing to help you in return.
