What I Learnt About Networking From Promoting A Club

It's not about speed:

. Don't try to show off by downing a bunch of shots. This is how you pass out fast and embarass yourself.

. This is how you also end up forgetting tons of shit that happen during the night. No, it's not that funny or cute anymore. This is how college kids behave while drinking. There is literally no relationship-building here.

It's about survival:

. Learn how to drink with some class.

. Converse with your guests.

. Deliver value and help them.

. Follow up after the night is over and create a relationship from there.

Don't try to outrush your competition.

Outlast them.
