Back to Business Networking? Our Thoughts on Attending In-Person Events
After 18 months of the Covid-19 pandemic, an increasing number of people are attending in-person business events. From media events and brand activations to industry conferences and local networking opportunities, we're seeing a gradual return to the public sphere. But many questions remain. In this episode, Abbie Fink and Dr. Adrian McIntyre share their thoughts on attending in-person events. How do we make decisions about which events to attend? What health and safety protocols are hosts and venues putting in place, and how are they being communicated? Has the nature of small talk changed? Are business cards still relevant now that we've pretty much embraced all things virtual? Read Abbie Fink's blog post for this episode: "Business Networking is Still Relevant."
