  • available and the event was dubbed a networking event but you still couldn t conjure up the words or find the energy to be effective The truth is all of us have We ve all had the experience of being wallflowers and mimes both at parties and professional events because negotiating new crowds is hard And with few upcoming conferences ahead I thought I d share a few things I like to think about as I prepare for events In my view having the chance to meet new people can be very rewarding It s my opinion that you can learn something from just about any person you talk to not to mention from someone in a different industry than you or in a senior role in your organization As such these events can be a great opportunity to connect with interesting people share your ideas with others position yourself at your company inform yourself to make good professional decisions in the future and most importantly provide others with insight and information they might have been looking for As I ve said before my theory is that sharing information and giving is the best approach to connecting with new people But easier said than done right It takes courage to walk up to the CEO of your company or to the well dressed business man in the corner with ten people anxiously waiting to get fifteen seconds with him In fact sometimes doing that is harder than walking up to the girl or guy you ve been waiting to talk to all year long Well here are a few things I like to do to prepare for some of my networking interactions 1 Research In my view the more research you do before chatting with someone the better off you are If it s a work event or an industry event then that s easy Find out what the executive s interests and business needs are Research what s going on in the industry And try to find what previous companies they worked at And then distill that information to think about the top three or four points are that he or she might care about If not then you just have to be creative using both online and also interpersonal resources 2 Find Commonalities I also strongly believe that everyone has something in common with everyone else And the sooner you can find what you have in common the more quickly you can connect with someone especially if these commonalities are substantive So it s often good to connect on the things you ve researched and the things that most people might not have caught In the end it will show that you really cared about meeting them which will be a very nice compliment 3 Have A Good Delivery No matter what you know or have in common with them the best way to get them to pay attention is by having the right delivery For example if

  • it s critical that we leverage everyone s diverse skills and talents to achieve common objectives So I m glad that everyone s still fired up about the great weekend I hope that we ll all stay in touch after the event And after chatting with a few of my new friends it sounds like everyone plans to collaborate together on some of the world s most important issues in the future Thanks for reading everyone And stay tuned for LLW 2011 Tags Conference Diversity Leadership Sunday May 30th 2010 Diversity Leadership 3 Comments Day One of Latino Legacy Weekend Many people have good ideas but few are willing to put themselves on the line for them Often times they re afraid of rejection or they fear the hard work it takes to achieve success And other times they re simply afraid of failure especially when other people are watching On the other hand there are also leaders who create extraordinary results because they are deeply passionate about their cause These leaders work tirelessly to bring others together and connect them with their mission and to steer their organizations to new heights And that passion was not only evident but also contagious on the first day of Latino Legacy Weekend Despite long exhausting travel schedules and work schedules not to mention sentiments during the current economic crisis a sense of excitement filled the room from the very first minute at Latino Legacy Weekend Leaders from every industry filled the room law business finance public policy politics academia government and education It was good to see so many like minded people together with the mission of transforming power of ideas and building bridges across professions ideologies and regions And that certainly happened today across a series of panels speeches and collaborative discussions In one panel professionals from California Texas and New York talked about challenges in the education space In another a Northwestern Professor collaborated with an employee from Goldman Sachs and another professional from Municipal government to talk about immigration This was especially compelling considering we were at a Latino Conference and considering that I am originally from Arizona where immigration is the big issue of the day I was on the Business and Finance panel which came next Ironically this session was lot less technical than some of the others despite being the finance section One former BCG consultant talked about how important it is to following your passion while a fellow Stanford grad that I met there talked about finance and public policy As for me I gave my pitch about why it s so important to share information not only with each other but also with the next generation behind us At the last minutes I decided to divert quite a bit from the presentation I prepared not only because my prepared one was a bit long but also because I wanted to talk more from my gut and discuss a topic that I m passionate about

  • Day One of Latino Legacy Weekend - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    originally from Arizona where immigration is the big issue of the day I was on the Business and Finance panel which came next Ironically this session was lot less technical than some of the others despite being the finance section One former BCG consultant talked about how important it is to following your passion while a fellow Stanford grad that I met there talked about finance and public policy As for me I gave my pitch about why it s so important to share information not only with each other but also with the next generation behind us At the last minutes I decided to divert quite a bit from the presentation I prepared not only because my prepared one was a bit long but also because I wanted to talk more from my gut and discuss a topic that I m passionate about And in the end a few of the participants told me that they liked my talk so I m glad I decided to change things up We also had a panel on Politics and on Corporate America both of which went well The common theme between these two is that we need more Latino Leadership in these areas at the executive level the board level and high level political roles As part of that we talked about the low number of CEOs and about the prospects of a Latino president in America s future But we also discussed how that transition will not be easy and we talked about leadership strategies that we need to keep in mind as we navigate the business and political spheres In my view that s because public issues are inherently ambiguous Leaders must weigh tangible issues against intangible principles account for diverse views and beliefs in the community anticipate skepticism from just about everyone and balance all of that to eventually take a stand Leadership is less about command and control than it is about bringing people together and building consensus To do that leaders must not only understand the complex issues but they must also have a compelling message And in the end day one of the conference was filled with compelling messages and was inspiring And the night was also fun We had dinner at Star of Siam a Thai restaurant in Chicago and after that had a fun night out I look forward to day two of the conference Stay tuned Sunday May 30th 2010 Diversity Leadership TAGS Conference Diversity Leadership 3 Comments to Day One of Latino Legacy Weekend Cynthia Natalie Carrrasco May 30 2010 It was powerful to have so many thoughtful generous brilliantly provocative leaders assembled I m grateful you were a part and eager to maximize all that we ve learned Look forward to learning and working alongside you Cyn Jeremy C Wilson May 30 2010 Cynthia Natalie Carrrasco Cnythia thanks so much for reading and for your comment here on the site I can t agree more about the weekend I look

    think again Because if everyone felt that exact way then the numbers could swing in either direction very quickly It s the voters paradox More importantly the margin of victory in your district could still be a factor in the momentum any candidate gets during the election If you don t vote because you don t have the time then make the time I m busy too but spending a few minutes to register and vote is well worth the time If you don t vote because you don t like the game of politics I understand but don t agree Don t be fooled Half of the game of politics is a ploy by the news channels to get more eyeballs and make more money Another part is paid TV ads trying to get their party an advantage over the other Sure maybe some of of the hooploa comes from the candidates themselves But nothing unexpected given what s at stake in two weeks The good thing about voting is this Voting is free Or the price of a stamp if you mail your ballot in You can vote from anywhere and send in an absentee ballot if need be You can take part in the outcome You can help shape the next four years of our nation or of your local geography in other elections You can join the other thousands of people that will be doing the same You can influence other people in your community to vote You can exercise a right that people have fought and died for You can get smart about the issues You can take a stand for what you believe in You can get started learning and have a stronger voice next time The candidates are different So are their policies

    finish strong I can t help but think of people who had to work really hard to get through college People who start in communities where many people don t graduate but still find a way to defy the odds and finish One of my mentees Jaime Limon is the perfect example Jaime went to an inner city high school in Los Angeles where about 25 of the students graduate within four years but he worked hard and went on to graduated with honors and go on to USC His struggle hasn t been easy He had to start at another University and spend some time at a community college before getting into the school of his dreams two years later Now he s working in a great summer internship in Los Angeles and will be finishing up in December Finishing takes vision focus discipline and comittment And it often takes getting up and trying again when the going gets tough I am a big fan of working harder when it gets tough defying the odds and finishing something you started Easier said than done but worth getting better at Congrats to my team for finishing strong the past few weeks And congrats to one of my clients and former MBA classmates who finished up the private equity deal on his side He ll be getting married out west this Saturday and I look forward to joining him Thursday July 11th 2013 Careers Education TAGS Careers education 1 Comment to Finishing Jasmine Chan July 15 2013 Great article Thanks Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social
