From CareerBuilder.com comes this advice thanks to Deanna Hartley (Courier-Post Feb. 12, 2017)

Start with these tips to turn any social situation into a networking opportinuty:

  • Proactively seek out opportunities
  • Look for opportunities while traveling
  • Mingle at conferences
  • Find ways to add value to others
  • When you meet a stranger, strive to engage in authentic conversations

Here are my two adds:

  • Craft and practice delivering an effective “Elevator Speech” [See The Public Relations Practitioner’s Playbook for (all) Strategic Communicators Chapter 13]
  • Have your business cards closely at hand — with a QR code on it
