Rapport can be described as that nice warm feeling and good chemistry we feel when we are in communication with another person or group of people. Generally what is happening is that the value systems are in sync, and people are always looking for the good in the other person.

Thanks Niall, I would agree with you. Many people I have met just feel awkward! No two ways about it. However, they are focusing too much on themselves, they could be focusing on the other people - helps to shed those nerves!

But having some form of a plan, or strategy is a great way to ensure you get something from the meeting, and not relying on the meeting to provide you with... whatever!

I believe you get out what you put in. Thanks for the comment.

Hi Elaine, I have to admit, I'm was generally not a big fan of most organised networking events in that you often ended up saying hello to a great many people, but actually having very few meaningful conversations. Now, however it is possible to pre-arrange who you should talk to through using social media well. Combine this with your rapport building tips above and you end up making networking events a lot more valuable.
