Structure for Introducing Yourself at Networking Events.

I shared with you a structure to introduce yourself effectively at networking events. This structure is simple, but it will help you highlight the value and results you bring your clients or your team.

Here is the structure:

“I help….[who]…so they can…[value/result]…”

For example:

  1. “I help people who are going through a divorce to come to an mutual agreement so they can part amicably and with less stress”.
  2. “I help mid-size businesses increase their efficiency by incorporating technology into their work processes”.
  3. “I help emerging leaders increase their visibility and influence so they can get promotions and new clients”.

I hope you find this structure useful the next time you’re asked the question, “What do you do?” at a networking event.
