Command the room – @artofmanliness

As a sovereign professional, you spend an inordinate amount of time entering unfamiliar rooms, full of strangers. It’s unavoidable. You need to meet new clients and potential clients. You need to attend conferences, training and those semi-social-semi-business occasions.

You may even feel that life is a little too long, so you burn some surplus life-energy at “Networking Events”.

The Art of Manliness blog has some top tips on commanding the room. It’s practical, simple stuff we should all do, but forget in the anxiety of the moment, such as:

  • Walk in boldly
  • Stand up straight!
  • Make eye contact

The rest, with background detail, here.
