Networking "Red Feather" Style (Part I)

By Kuulei Stockman

The following article/story was written by Michele Lawson, Speaker-Social Media Strategist-Brand Image Consultant-Writer-Co-Author of upcoming book Unleash Your Networking Mojo: Building an Awesome Network. Instead of telling her story, perhaps it’s best to simply share it in her own words:

People are quick to complain and slow to praise. Review sites are filled with folks waiting to tell you about their unpleasant experiences. Ask someone, anyone, about a networking event and you're bound to hear horror story after horror story. Utter rudeness. Outright rejections. Awkward encounters. Until now; cue the story of Red Feather Networking. 

Picture this: an international conference, 8,000+ attendees, 4 days, and one lone traveler.

Networking "Red Feather" Style (Part II)

By Kuulei Stockman 

If you haven’t read Part I of this wonderful article, please find it below. This is Part II of this ingenious networking concept.

Did the concept of "Red Feather Networking" stand the test of time? 

Yes. No. When networking is done on that scale, it is illogical to think that everyone will be besties for the rest of their life. However, the majority of those who participated in that inaugural red feather form of networking are still in touch today. Professionally, they are a network on the ready to collaborate or lend a helping hand. Armed with suggestions and feedback, they support each other from all points on the globe. They celebrate the wins and commiserate the losses. Many have become personal friends. The types of friends who visit each other's homes, send goodies from vacation destinations, and provide a shoulder to cry on when everything isn't so peachy. The practice of placing the feather in the name badge has also stood the test of time. Four years later, people are still meeting in this very unique and non-threatening way.

Our advice to other companies is: Network, network, network! Networking events can sometimes be a drag or down-right exhausting after some time. It is not about the quantity of people you meet at an event, but the quality of the relationships built. Take the time to genuinely get to know one or two people who you find interesting in some way and connect like two old friends.
