Below are tips to keep in mind when you attend NCH's Physician Networking Event on Wednesday, September 13, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Ditka’s in Arlington Heights.

  • The name tag is worn on the right side to provide an easy sight-line to your name when shaking hands.
  • Be sure to introduce yourself! Say your name clearly: “Hello, my name is _______. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
  • Have a firm handshake.
  • Listen and ask questions: Avoid monopolizing the conversation.
  • Once the event is over, your networking doesn’t stop! Be sure to follow up with those you’ve met and keep in contact.
