How To Survive A Conference As An Introvert | NETWORKING AT A CONFERENCE

Welcome back. Today we’re talking about how to survive at
conference as an introvert and still book clients. A few weeks ago I attended not one but two
conferences in the span of seven days and that was the Military Influencer Conference
as well as FinCon. Now, while conferences are great for making
new connections, finding clients and connecting with potential partners, as an introvert,
it can be the most draining activity ever. Like in the history of the earth. So what can you do when you want to gain clients
at conferences but you’re drained just thinking about it? Here are my introvert friendly tips for conferences. Number one, drink plenty of water and get
lots of sleep. Stay hydrated so you can keep your energy
up. Also, you can schedule a time for a nap or
even get to bed early. I know it’s tempting to stay out late, but
if you want to maintain that energy, you’ve got to get to bed early. Step two, meet as many people as possible
on the first or the second day, even if it’s a short chat in the elevator. Get these conversations in early while you
have the most energy. As the days go on, you’ll find yourself not
as excited to start new conversations and so you’ve gotta make that effort early on. It’ll make it easier as the days go on. Step three, this is one that I use, which
is just stick your hand out. This is one of my favorite ways to force myself
to meet people. I say, “I don’t think we’ve met yet, my
name is LaTisha.” and I literally stick my hand out there for a handshake. If you force your body to take action before
your introvert brain starts to back pedal with, “They’re already looking at their
phone” or “I don’t feel like talking right now” or “what am I going to say?” Or I don’t feel like talking or they don’t
feel like talking, et cetera, et cetera. It’s that much easier to actually follow through
with the action and with the conversation. Now here’s a bonus and something I liked to
do, which is make it a game, so not just at conferences but also at networking events. I make it a game. I force myself to meet at least one person
before I can leave. And at a conference my goal is to meet at
least two new people per day, and if I haven’t done that, then basically I don’t get points
for the day. I make it fun and so it is fun. And then I take a nap. I’d love to hear from you. What do you do at a conference to help with
