The pandemic has changed a lot of things, including the way we network. To talk about this shift, I am joined by someone Forbes, Lifehacker, and Harvard Business Review all recognize as a networking expert: Robbie Samuels. With the new normal rendering his expertise inapplicable, Robbie has had to reinvent. By doing so, he became an industry expert in the field of digital event design in order to continue helping others grow and expand their network.
Some of the topics we cover in this episode include the importance of community, networking tactics, and how to make Zoom meetups much less boring. We also go into detail how the pandemic has affected networking, what changes we’ve seen, and how Robbie became an industry expert in the field of digital event design. Furthermore, we also talk about the different kinds of people you’ll meet when networking and discuss the type of people you should surround yourself with. Last but not least, Robbie also explains the value of building relationships with the people in your network instead of just constantly meeting new people.
