Have you ever been to a party where you don’t know most of the people?
How about attended a seminar, a convention or a meet-up where everyone is most likely a stranger to each other?
When these times happen to you, what do you do?
Do you scan the crowd hoping for a familiar face to be with? Or do you just stay quietly in a corner and do your own business and try to look busy?
Below is a short talk by Alexis Bauer from Ignite in Sebastopol, California on “How to Work a Crowd“.
In this 5-minute presentation, she gives us some of the most effective ways to strike conversations, meet people and network effectively in a crowd of strangers.
Did you enjoy the video? I hope you were able to get some good pointers. Moreover, you might also want to check out my past article on: 16 Simple Tips for Business Networking Success
Lastly, here’s another Ignite Talk that I featured last time here from Eugene Lin entitled, iPhoning My Way To Retirement.
