I have been at the PUB (not that pub), the PowerUpBlog of Ingenuity Marketing (thanks to Michelle Golden at Golden Marketing for bringing this one to my attention) reading their what’s your story post and I’ve realised that I am guilty of giving off negative vibes about my profession.
I am apologetic at times, when I mention what I do and I’m not exactly sure why. May be it’s because there are so many of us about and the list is growing. CIMA, alone, celebrated its 70,000th member back in February 2007.
Anyway, also take a look at PUB’s Elevator Speeches, which would also be quite relevent for networking, particularly speed networking, where there isn’t that much time to make an impression.
