For a number of reasons I think traditional networking breakfasts and lunches are dead. It is yesterday's model. I’m always looking for new ways to connect with people and I love that Met Walking is so casual. I can come along in my gym gear and I don't have to present myself as something. And it’s exercise!
I think that when you are walking and talking it is less confrontational. It's very easy going, relaxed and generally a nice way to share information. Walking side by side really helps you connect.
Met Walking has certainly made a difference to my wellbeing. As a form of networking it is fantastic because you're outside in the lovely sunshine. Don’t know how they do it, but it is always sunny. At Met Walking you can meet quite a lot of people and have meaningful conversations without feeling like it's too forced or too staged. There is always a great group of people at the events. It’s less about ‘this is me, here’s my business card’ and more about deeper conversation and building meaningful relationships.
