Nine ideas to build up your professional network

We all know that a professional network is important but some of us are more eager to build and maintain their network than others. Especially if you are more of an introvert you might not like to run around at a large event. Consider these nine ideas for building your professional network.

​1) ​Go to a Toast Masters International event and learn public speaking at the same time​.

​2) Join the Swiss British Chamber of Commerce or a similar organisation.

3) Join the “International Club” in Winterthur.

4) Start your own Meetup-Group around your topic of interest.

5) Become a member of the InterNations Professional Networking group.

6) Book a seminar in your field of expertise, e.g. with ZfU Business School.

7) Host a party and show your cooking skills.

8) Take a dog from the “Tierheim” for a walk and strike up conversations with random people in the park.

9) Ask me for an introduction to one new person on LinkedIn. 🙂

As we all have hesitations around networking I have come up with “10 Professional Networking Principles”. You might want to read them before you reach out to the crowd.
