Better networking

Dipti Thakrar provides some tips to ensure you network more effectively

The word ‘networking’ carries a baggage of emotions depending on where you are within your career timeline. My emotions prior to attending an event have ranged from being absolutely petrified to extremely excited – regardless of the stage of my career. I was asked to write this article by a delegate who attended my break-out session for the East Midlands Annual Tax conference in March 2019. I hope you find it useful. 

I will offer ideas and easy to incorporate tips that you can use in everyday professional conversations, allowing you to create meaningful connections from your networking. We are all trying to build a network which goes beyond our current roles, careers and organisations.
