Creating Connections: Networking for Professionals
Sure, at the end of the networking event you got your business card into everyone’s hand, but have they called you yet? Real networking is about making contact, not just getting contacts. Don’t let chance determine your success, practice effective techniques so you are ready for the next opportunity. If you are one of the many who hate networking, this session will help you feel more comfortable and at ease when representing yourself or your organization.
Creating Connections is an interactive workshop that puts you on your feet and on the spot. You will learn:
- How to capture someone’s attention.
- How to avoid hovering around only the people you know.
- To move smoothly in and out of conversations
- To identifying solid prospects
- To set goals for networking at professional events
