If i don't have guests should i come?
You will never grow a network unless you are actively out on the social scene so if you are going to take this job seriously then we advise that you are out as much as possible even if you have no guests planned. the longer you are out at venues the more you will become known for representing the venue and you will be able to build relationships with the staff at the venue which is beneficial for yourself for obvious reasons.
