When I first heard the term I thought of the early printed documents that announced a show was in town or the circus! Well, you are the next best thing to a bearded lady or double-headed tiger… so promote yourself!
The use of handbills is not required at ExecuNet or other networking meetings. Use your judgment on it’s usefulness as a leave-behind that gives a high-level summary of your work, not your resume… something more functional. Handbills are as varied as the people who create them.
I like the attached sample, offered by ExecuNet participant, Martin Zummersch, because of the ways he helps his reader slice and dice his target position in several ways. As I like to say, he has stimulated your Google-mind with keywords and “handles” you can grab on to.
Note: This Word document uses tables with shaded backgrounds, so be prepared for the classy look and know what you are doing with table rows and columns before you start if you choose to edit and use this as a template. Otherwise just get inspired and update your own document with concepts you like.
Martin, thank you for offering to share your hard work with your fellow executive seekers.
