Conference was impressive- the BIGWIGS in the industry came. Verry technical . Jargon galore. People were there to learn about everyone else's industry but they did not start from ground 0. Felt verry ignorant and small. Know enough to talk to people lah but here's the lesson I have learnt abt networking:
a. Know your subject well
b. Know the industry well
c. Read about the guests with whom you will be seeking to mingle- know their industry a bit also
d. brush up on current events
e. if all else fails- Ask them about themselves!!
Semalam we sent them to tennis - from 8 to 9.30. They seem to enjoy it , although it is interesting to see who has the aptitude for it and who has not- Dahlia and Johan seem to be naturals, Nadine is ok and Sara is very competitive. Sophia has unfortunately inherited my lack of co-ordination. hahahaha. But hopefully she can improve. The coach is a kindly man - he is good with kids and can talk to them. Mr Chow, is his name.
