Spring has eventually come to London this year. The trees of the streets are bursting with pretty blossom.
You can hear the birds twittering but it takes a while to spot them in among the branches of the trees.
Once spotted you need to keep still in order to capture them with the click of the camera shutter.
The zoom on my Fujifilm was just enough to capture this robin and record its song on my you tube channel.
The skill in capturing birds on film got me thinking that it is quite a similar activity to what we do at networking events. We are quasi bird catchers.
He charms the birds with his pan pipes and magical bells.
As networkers it is your challenge to charm your birds from your networking branches into your cage.
Perhaps you could envision in your mind , your business card capture or sales leads as the birds for our networking cage.

This a playful set of descriptions not to be taken too seriously but then again you might encounter them...
In the classic film The Birds Seagulls provide the terror for film director Alfred Hitchcock .
Their aggressiveness takes over any conversation or person they feel will be useful to them and push smaller birds out of their way.
Although salespeople cannot directly control them, or guarantee them, you can greatly increase your chances of benefiting from all of them by successful networking.
Good Luck and Good selling my fellow P-P-Papagenos and P-P-Papagenas
