While we like to think everyone is approachable at our events, we are realistic enough to know that even though it’s exciting walking into an event along with 75 to 150 attendees, it can also be daunting.
Even for self-proclaimed extroverts!
An example is this year’s winner of the TCWEP Member of the Year award, Jeannine Pohl of Jeannine Marie Photography. She describes the first time she mustered up the courage to attend an event as “I forget where the event was held, but oh-boy do I remember sweating bullets going into the meeting!” She goes on to say that “Thanks to watching and learning from fellow TCWEP member Lori Snyder, I learned to approach networking as an opportunity to help and connect people.”
