FAR June Luncheon
"Networking: An Effective Tool for Success" 

Tim Kime, Jr.
On Tuesday, June 20, self-proclaimed "Networking Nerd" Tim Kime proved to FAR members that intentional networking can be learned, can be fun and can be productive. Even attendees that came to the luncheon with a distinct aversion to networking enjoyed the chance to practice Tim's approach and to realize the fun of building new connections faster and better than before. Among Tim's exercises was his outline for writing an elevator speech: one that begins with knowing your target audience and its needs, stating your organization and its scope, key benefits and, finally, stating clearly what separates you from others in your field. After that, the networking practice finds you becoming a reporter, i.e. a listener who engages your new contact with key questions that enriches the connection. Tim's closer was his acronym for cementing the connection - PRESS. An effective follow-up is Personal, Regular, Engaging, offer a Service and is Simple.
