Speed networking – scary right?
Yes I agree.
But it’s certainly good training for thinking on your feet, having fun, and speaking fast! And if by doing it over and over in one evening, you find the balance of not coming across overly humble, or overly salesy, then it’s worth the experience. It’s time efficient, you can make lots of new contacts fast, and who knows – it could be the start of something beautiful!
Today I went to the “Launchpad” day of the KPI Programme.
KPI in this instance stands for Key Person of Influence programme. I don’t know if you have ever heard of KPI, but my friend Darshana (who I interviewed last year in this very blog) is now Head of Business at Entrevo UK, and they are the company who run the programme.
The KPI programme is an intense programme for entrepreneurs and business owners and is based on a book called “Become a Key Person of Influence” by Daniel Priestley.
When the book came out I was lucky enough to get a copy as I participated in an offer run by the publishers.
So, I have the book, isn’t that enough?
