How to Network in a Virtual World – Part 1

Leo Manzione

Have you ever attended networking meetings in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco within a 24 hour period? What about adding Sydney, New Delhi, and France to that list?

Previously? Unrealistic.
ight now? More realistic than ever before.

You see, these meetings used to be in-person so this tour would have required expensive airfare, hotel stays, and some sort of time machine to make it all possible within 24 hours. Now however, due to Covid-19, they’re all online and more accessible than ever.

While we’ll be exploring the benefits of these groups (and others like them) in future posts, today it’s all about time zones and why you should visit them all over the world. It’s never been easier and it may never be again.

Simply put: If you are a member of BNI or ProVisors and you’re not visiting other groups, you’re missing out. Even if you don’t want additional business, it’s an opportunity like never before.
