Networking is not - having the most LinkedIn contacts, business cards or selling ice to Eskimos. Business networking is about gathering not hunting. This morning workshop will equip you with the skills to network effectively,  build your reputation, and generate value. 

Outcomes from this workshop:

- Understanding the power of your networks (new & existing)

- How to make networking more effective, more efficient and more fun

- Gain confidence when entering a room full of people you don’t know

- Taking networking online - how to follow up on those first encounters at events (LinkedIn etc)

This workshop will appeal to both seasoned networkers and those unsure how to gain the most value from networking. 

The event is facilitated by Dorje McKinnon from Brighter Days.

To keep you powered for an early morning start, we will provide coffee, tea & breakfast muffins.
