      Setting up a commonly valuable association with different businessmen and potential customers and additionally clients is vital for any professional. However, how many times have you thought about making networking interesting and fun. Few of the effective leadership activities that help build or understand the importance of strong networking:


      1. Beer Olympics: The Beer Olympics challenge is all about making stronger bonds and connections with the team members. It is a casual team building event that involves beer at every challenge. Why beer? Because we have seen people networking better over beer. The idea is simple, Leaders loosen up among like-minded people and learn new insights from others.

Here, interesting roles are assigned to the team members; bartender, chopper, mixer, etc. Well, this does not end here; the team of leaders are required to earn the ingredients from the auction which really needs a lot of good networking.
