Hi All,


I travel for atleast 7 to 10 days in a month largely to the US. I want to take the opportunity to meet and network with people focusing on healthcare and edtech!


I am going to be in San Francisco and want to see how I can connect with people!

Are you attending the RESI conference? The key would be to connect with these people on LinkedIn and other sites then coordinate meetings when you will be in their area to learn more and solidify relationships. Feel free to review my network and see if there is anyone youbwould like to connect with.

Yeah! you can connect with people by sharing tour ideas with them and asking what they feel about it by so doing you get along and creat that avenue that you wanted and getting interested to always talk with.

I prefer the more relaxed, intentless approach with a mix of Dale Carnegie's way of thinking. Just talk to people like they're people (and be interested in them more than yourself) . If something or someone captures your interest, talk to them about what you admire. I apply this to anyone, anywhere.

I think 'connect with people' is a very broad net - you obviously would want to narrow your focus. Meetup.com and Eventbrite are two sites I use to research events and their audience.

But the most difficult problem you will have to solve is how to build any meaningful relationships. People we meet for 15 minute chat are not going to be the next best friend for you (and vice versa).

Hello Dear Friends,

According to the nature of my Business, traveled around 10 Days in a month. When I finished my works on Business Trip, I am trying to make new networks in new destinations. Sometime, when I was traveled old destination, I made a plan to meet with my Customers for CRM. And also to meet with news. When I have a plan to meet with my Clients, Customers, ...., I was prepared some presents for them. Some training away from my city, I did tried to attend for new networks.
