I like that there are sooooooooo many quality and professional people who attend these events. I like that they are all very willing to introduce themselves to you . I like that they are all more than happy to make introductions to other folks they may know that YOU want to know.
Have a great day. I hope to be at the next event.
Networking with a wide variety of business people with a professional business focus, always there to help one another through the good and the bad. I cannot tell you how many people help me, gave me leads, and passed information along to contacts for me while I was seeking employment. I have met some great people in this city that I am now proud to call my friends. “Pay It Forward” is what it is all about!!! Helping one another Houston Style..
I love the amazed reports of first time attendees as they come to say thanks when they are leaving.
It is very common to have many come to me to tell me that they were able to meet great people and even nail down new business or job opportunities.
The Give First, pay-it-forward, servant leadership attitude of the majority of attendees never ceases to amaze me.
I have started life-long friendships with wonderful people at these events.
If you worry less about how you can give your 30 second schpeel and more about asking good questions and building trust with those you meet, you are on the right step. Then, if you can introduce someone you met with someone else who is there right then you are going to become a center of influence at these meetings.
Let's keep the fire blazing hot and heat up this wonderful city's economy with the business and relationships we build.
Eric, of the many things I like about InHouston, I like the fact that you had the courage to step up and initiate this organization, and work diligently to create and ensure its success. And, without a doubt, it is successful. When we are long gone, and the businesses of the city honors your memory, by presenting an award to the best networker in Houston, they will be awarded the Golden Business Card Holder which will be called "The ERIC".
Second, is the participation, curiosity and commitment of the many members who work the strategy, which will also help Houston to maintain its stronghold as one of the greatest cities in the US.
