I tried these questions and they were a complete success. 3 new ways to network

I don’t really enjoy networking, especially when I am the only person I know at the event. Also, I never know how to strike up a conversation. So I was happy to discover that there are other ways to start a conversation than the old ‘what do you do’. I tried these questions and they were a complete success.

Here is how to navigate networking like a pro;

1# If there is 1 thing I need to know about you, what would it be?

This usually opens up a whole other conversation than anything work-related and will bring you fun surprises about the person you are talking to.

2# Where did you spend your childhood?

People tend to open up a bit more when talking about memories. When asking about someone childhood, you might also find more common ground than you would, when just talking about your work.

3# What is a good book to read?

Most people read books. Most people have a book that they recommend to everyone. By asking someone about it, they will become enthusiastic and also explain why they loved the book. This will get you talking about other interests or the profound impacts that books can have on your life.

So the goal is...

The goal is to talk to others and get to know them beyond what they do in daily life. By opening up a conversation beyond work you get to know people a bit better and also now their interests.

We are Olivia & Morgan

So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
