That’s because networking isn’t just about meeting people. It’s about making meaningful connections. And every place has its own traditions, cultures, and quirks when it comes to meeting, mingling, and finding common ground with others.
Salt Lake City is no different. That’s why we’ve created some handy networking tips for finance, accounting, and HR professionals tailored to this dynamic, unique location.
“One thing many people may not realize about SLC is the strong emphasis on community building,” says Alessandro Cozzi, a Salo business development director in
Salt Lake City.
“Networking here often goes beyond exchanging business cards,” Alessandro explains. “There’s a real focus on developing long-term relationships and actively supporting and promoting each other’s businesses.”
“There’s no place in SLC where people aren’t willing to open up and chat,” says says Danny Memmott, another Salo business development director in Salt Lake City.
Finding networking events in Salt Lake City is easier than you think. Here are some ways you can get started:
“Whether they’re skiing, enjoying the red rock regions, beautiful lakes, salt flats, biking trails, or national forests, Utahns love to be outdoors,” Danny explains.
His colleague Alessandro agrees, adding, “The restaurant and bar scene in Salt Lake City is a vibrant one, too. There is truly something for everyone here.”
Making a successful initial connection is only the first step toward learning how to grow your professional network in Salt Lake City.
