    E024 - Host a Networking Event That Doesn't Suck with Nick Gray

    Have you ever heard of the term “it's not what you know but who you know?” You can have the best business idea in the world, but nobody knows about it or trusts you, and no one will buy your products. That is why networking with new people is important to broaden your exposure and, most importantly, your network. Networking is a powerful tool for growing your business.

    Exchanging information and ideas with new people can help you generate new leads, find potential customers, expand your reach and improve your business. Join this conversation with Nick Gray, the master of cocktail parties, and learn more about how
    to host a successful cocktail party. We go through all the mechanics and logistics to make this easy and doable for anyone, even those with a busy schedule.

    Nick Gray moved to New York City with very few friends and less-than-stellar social skills. But Nick craved new relationships and exciting opportunities. He started hosting non-traditional parties—a move that never could have imagined opened doors. Today, after hosting hundreds of 2-hour parties, he counts business owners, artists, and inspiring teachers among a circle of friends that helped him launch a multimillion-dollar company. Featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, Nick has been called a host of “culturally significant parties” by New York Magazine.
