I love to organize networking lunches.
I love to invite everyone in the office and see who accepts and declines the invitation. I love to see the names of new people that have accepted my invitation and make a mental note of who I would like to meet at the lunch.
I love to receive reply emails from previous attendees saying that they are not available but to keep them posted of future events. It shows that they value the events. I love that.
At the lunch, I love the energy. I love the interactions between people who have never met before. I love to see people asking genuine questions of others and showing interest in others.
Naturally, I love to participate as well especially since I love to meet new people. I always feel energized.
I love to organize networking lunches!
