We all know that networking is the key to being successful in your career but often we don’t know where to begin or what steps to take. Networking is a principal way people are landing their dream jobs and growing their business. In fact, studies show that personal connections help fill in 80% of open positions, many of which are not even advertised. For those who freelance or run their own business, 90% of small businesses get business from referrals, which means your network is your net worth in business. 

Whether you’re looking to expand in your current career or explore a new industry, it’s the people you meet who will lead your way. What are the best ways to create credible and genuine introductions? How do you maintain relationships with people that you just met? And how do you use your professional relationships to propel your career forward? There is an art to building and maintaining strong relationships. 

Join us for a lively and interactive event as we explore best practices to build effective networks and nurture strategic relationships. Come prepared to learn and apply networking skills on the spot that will help you:

  • Understand how to think strategically about networking as a life long professional skill
  • Learn what it takes to be successful in transitioning first time connections into long standing resources and supporters
  • Understand your unique value proposition and bring that forward into your networking approach
