It is time to network virtually. My friend, George, recently told me during a meeting we were having on zoom, “Listen, Manny, tell me what is different about the conversation we just had on zoom and sitting at the local coffee shop and having the same conversation? I had to confess. I replied, “Nothing.”
“Yes, we are on a screen, but it is the same. I see you, you see me. We are having a conversation,” George added.
Conversations still take place.
Relationships can still be built.
All the stuff we were used to in networking is alive and well.
