Lunch Networking Rules of the Road

27 Jun

Two recent bloggers discussed proper behavior at networking lunches.

We couldn’t help but notice that, first, blogger Liz Ryan acknowledges that networkers “rely so heavily on favors from the people they meet along the way.” That’s one of the main purposes of Down4Lunch — to help you meet the people that can make your career and business prospects even stronger.

Ryan shares other tips, among them using a first meeting not to close a deal but to establish a rapport with the other person for followup meetings and requests later on.

Vivan Chen discusses lunch-time etiquette, useful reminders appropriate for more than just business lunches.
