Are early-risers better networkers?

Yesterday, I was talking with a client about a networking event she didn’t want to attend because it’s at 7 AM.

Of course, I can’t force her to get up early and go, but I pointed out that, from my experience, the people one meets at a breakfast event at 7 AM are quite different from the people one meets at a cocktail hour at 6 PM. I find early-risers to be more productive, more ambitious and sometimes even more valuable networking buddies.

What do you think?
