|How can you prepare for the Scramble?
|I have to admit, the first time I went to the McHenry Scramble, everything felt a
bit chaotic. The first 45 minutes before the lunch even began, everyone was
moving around like a networking frenzy to get out business cards. They are
doing this mainly to hand their card to the "Secret Scram-Bee" - and if they
draw your card later in the day, you could win a very nice prize. I won two
tickets to the Annual Dinner Dance....so it pays to get your cards around.
Every year, the McHenry Chamber puts on a Networking Extravaganza to
help prepare people for the networking which is about to unfold. They will
help you prepare answers for the three questions which will be asked (see:
what is the scramble), teach you to listen more than you talk, and to always
ask questions to learn about other's businesses.
My first year, I did not do any preparation for the Scramble and figured it
would be just like any other networking event. I was greatly mistaken, as it
was much more than I ever would have anticipated for a $20 event. The food
is good (for a networking event), you can win prizes, and you always will make
good connections you can use for your business.
At a bare minimum, read through the bullets I've prepared on the right and
come ready for networking. See you there!
