Group behaviour: What is the psychology of networking and bonding?
Events are about getting people together in one place for a shared experience. A successful event is one that carefully considers these people: how they interact with one another and how they interact with the event speakers or organisers. To pull off the perfect people pleaser, a little bit of psychology goes a long way.
One of the most valuable aspects of any event is the networking opportunities it presents. Networking connects attendees with one another, sparking new ideas, forging new partnerships, and making the event worth attending and worth talking about. The problem with networking is that it can be, well, awkward. If you’ve ever turned up to a gathering as a “newbie” or first timer, you’ll know the feeling of hovering by the doorway, not knowing who to approach or where to begin.
