Our eagerly anticipated pool party at Christina Shaw’s home (www.imwithshaw.com) was canceled due to rain, but our networking continued. Lunch in Christina’s kitchen, a thousand + laughs, lots of connecting, and awesome conversation made for an extremely pleasant afternoon. Nothing can stop us; certainly not a little rain!
It makes sense, right? People enjoy being social, breaking bread, sharing stories and so Adrian’s Network provides these opportunities regularly. Dinner and lunch meetings, cocktail get-togethers that grow into more than just drinks, events at people’s homes (learning how to make dumplings at Christina’s Shaw’s place comes right to mind!), pizza crawls (thank you Rob […]
A networking lunch at a waterfront restaurant complete with a blood-orange margarita. Sound perfect? It was. I love networking in a casual environment, where the conversation flows easily and the laughs are loud. A great lunch with Stephanie Larkin, Founder of Red Penguin Books.

This week I had the opportunity to have lunch with Josh Fields Josh is an experienced residential Real Estate professional, avid sports fan, lover of music, theater, good food, and enjoying life. Do you know Josh? You should. Reach out and connect.
I had a great networking lunch with A’s Netter Stephanie Larkin, Founder of Red Penguin Books. Besides eating yummy food at Small Batch, we spent almost 2 hours talking about travel and our upcoming trips, what’s on our proverbial “bucket list,” and our rules for a successful trip (i.e. NEVER checking luggage, landing and hitting […]
Sharing a meal is one of the best ways to grow a relationship. Try to schedule a networking lunch at least once every few weeks to learn more about your fellow networkers and share ideas, marketing intelligence, and maybe even some leads!
One-to-one calls and Zooms are the best (only!) way to develop substantive relationships that can lead to introductions. Don’t ignore the impact of having an individual conversation. It’s where the networking REALLY happens! And meet Debra Dixon-Anderson, President of Light of Gold PR.
