Public Speaker Mike For- man, a U.S. Air Force and Desert Storm veteran, spoke to local Rotarians on ways and means to build business networking ca- pabilities. His main points were: smile (personality) and humor. Emphasizing FORM (Family, Occupa- tion, Recreation, Message) along with rapport and respect, especially for cul- tural differences, will help to bond a person within a desired social circle. As for a networking event, be the host not a guest, listen more than you talk, and be proactive. Lastly, use social media to build the network.
