A few days ago in Washington DC we had the first cocktail of our Trade and Investment Practice Group. It was an excellent opportunity for networking and strengthening relations among delegates of several WSG firms.
The participants to the event were able to meet and network with delegates from around the world and share their experiences, ideas and projects. Networking is a key activity for business growth and development, as it is a great tool to promote you and your firm’s profile, creating new opportunities, and sharing knowledge (which provides an opportunity to learn and avoid pitfalls).
Networking is not about meeting more people, it is about building long-term relationships. Accordingly, networks must be constantly strengthened and improved, and for this purpose, it is important to keep in touch with new acquaintances and nurture relationships.
This is an invitation to remain in contact, share news and opportunities, make use of WSG’s and our practice group’s resources, and prepare for our next year’s gathering in during the 2016 ABA SIL spring meeting to be held in New York City from April 12 until April 16.
