No matter how often you have done it, networking can be challenging. Whether you are at the very beginning of your career in museums, have just been promoted into your first management position, or as a new Trustee are now finding yourself representing a museum – even seasoned networkers can, at times – feel those nerves rise when asked to 'work the room'.
What does it really take to be successful in networking and what benefits can networking deliver?
The Hampshire Solent team have put their heads together to compile their top 12 tips to help museums get the most from networking.
Something missing from this list?
We would like to hear from you! Join the new Museum Networkers LinkedIn group and discuss networking:
- what tips you have to make new contacts?
- any feedback on the best networking events?
- ask about networking opportunities for museums in your area!
The group is open to join to anyone with a genuine interest in museums, but is best suited to those working or volunteering in museums in and around Hampshire Solent.
