Don't wait to initiate!

No matter how shy you might feel, there is always someone at a networking event standing alone who will be happy for your interruption of their silence. Don't wait for someone else to start a conversation. If you're standing alone, find another person looking to connect. If you see someone standing alone and you're in a group, invite them in to join. Other networkers will appreciate your welcoming attitude.
