What is schmoozing? My trusty urban dictionary defines it as…
Making ingratiating small talk – talk that is business oriented, designed to both provide and solicit personal information but avoids overt pitching. Most often an artifact of “networking.” It is more art than science but can be learned.
But how do we do it in a way that doesn’t make us either, a) a stalker or b) an awkward see creature that just timidly stands there waiting for any chance to laugh loudly and inappropriately at someone else’s joke. Why suddenly when it comes to “networking” we turn into these quirky characters?
As part of Sophie’s video series, she discusses the Art of Schmoozing.
