Shannon Hoagland’s Creative Remedy for Boring Networking Events

Most legal networking events involve drinking wine in rooms with strangers. By contrast, Shannon’s approach to client entertainment emphasizes three things:

  1. It has to be fun.
  2. It has to be what you want to be doing.
  3. It has to be who you want to be with.

In other words, entertaining clients doesn’t have to be a chore. Hanging out with your clients can be as much fun as hanging out with your friends — and if you’re doing it right your clients will be your friends.

Shannon even came up with a great idea for building a client event around one of my hobbies, winter camping.
