If you are a singer, you must also be a business person! You are the face of your company! You are your entire company and without you, your company would not exist! For today’s blog, you will learn some of the best networking practices as a singer AND as a business person. Our next blog post will focus more on singing with an interview with a true Queen of the Night, the wonderful Greek Soprano Christina Poulitsi (Stay tuned!), but for now, let’s get down to business.
If you’ve ever gone to a competition, convention or event, it can be scary to try to talk with groups of people you have never met. Furthermore, if you are there to network and make connections, the stakes can be that much higher, making you that much more nervous. Here are a few best practices to make sure you maximize your networking experience.
I am sure many of you already signed up for the CS singer music convention in Chicago over Memorial day weekend. Maybe some of you won the regional auditions and will compete at the convention in the finals, or you will take the chance to learn from experts in your field in some of the 100+ convention classes. It will be an exciting event that will propel you forward in your career. To prepare you best for the convention or any event that you will attend in the future, learn from Anikka’s blog today.
