Networking Event

I’ve heard Brooke mention she is somewhat of an introvert and does not like going to networking events. I struggle with this as I am very much an introvert. I don’t see that as a negative. I actually view it as a positive trait. In the next few months I have several events I’ll be attending by myself. There is always networking time in between meetings. How can I use the model to change my feelings around networking and introduce myself to strangers?
