Networking with hearing loss

Hi - just started new job. On occasions I may attend networking events. I struggle to hear people in noisy rooms. I just explain my difficulties and ask if the person would be happy to move elsewhere quiter to continue discussion.

Any other top tips on how to network with people when you have a hearing loss? 

  • Nice to see that there were no injuries in the rush to reply.

    Quite honestly networking is one of the hardest obstacles that deaf people have to tackle. The very definition of deafness includes the word "isolation" and that's what it means. Being left out of the loop. The last one to know. The last one standing up when someone shouts "Duck".
