Perhaps the reason that we don’t appear as an interesting person to others is that we didn’t show enough interest.
People will forget what you say, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.Maya Angelou
Go to a networking event. Talk to people.
And how would you want to appear charming, confident and interesting? By asking questions and listening.
Because when the event is over and everyone goes home, who would they remember? Probably not the guy who talked just about himself, but that one person in the event that made them feel something.
And I’ll bet that person would most probably be a good listener who took interest in people.
