Networking is a key skill, whether you are trying to develop your career, identifying sources of support or trying to identify opportunities for you. This presentation will introduce you to some of the things that you will need to address and also give you opportunity to hone your skills.
After a short introduction to the skill set needed to be successful at networking the session will allow you to put them into practice and try different approaches and introductions. The event will also allow you to increase your network with 10 to 15 individuals who you have not met before. After the formal networking there will be an opportunity to further explore what does and does not work for you and to strengthen some of the relationships that you will have established in the practical session. You will also get an opportunity to develop your skill in moving on from one conversation to another. You will want to be able to contact people afterwards so don’t forget to bring along your business cards or develop a QR code for yourself!
