“I learned this hack at an event in San Francisco. The event provided free pizza and beer.There were two beer taps and attendees could help themselves. With a lack of networking opportunities falling into my lap, I decided to grab two slices, then pour myself a glass of beer.

In front of the beer taps was a counter. I placed my pizza and beer on the counter and started eating. In between bites, I’d stop and look around.

Sure enough, others found the counter a convenient area to place their food and drink. People who stood next to me would introduce themselves. That night, I met a serial entrepreneur and an executive recruiter. When I go back to the same event, I seek out that counter.”

This is one really good idea. I might just try it the next time I’m at a conference or other networking event. Have you tried this one, or any of the other tips in the article?
