On the Schmooze Podcast: Leadership | Strategic Networking | Relationship Building
About This Show
Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Over the last few months, I’ve been working with an association to increase connections at their convention. In an age where information is found with one click and we count “likes” as engagement, conventions hold the promise of meaningful in-person connection with like-minded colleagues. Only through thoughtful and strategic planning will this promise become a reality.
Prior to my work with the association, I asked questions about their membership and the culture they had created at their convention over the last three decades. That’s when I discovered that a lot of the front line staff attending this event would likely not have business cards. As I shared in episode 14, “Are Business Cards Dead?”, even in the age of smartphones and apps, business cards are a critical tool for networking. This episode’s title is “The ABCs of Business Cards” because I believe you should Always. Bring. Cards. Remember those ABCs and you’ll be ready to make connections.
