"Just as diverse companies yield higher returns, diverse networks do, too." - Kristy Wallace, CEO, Ellevate
Networking may seem old fashioned in a world resplendent with AI and too many social media accounts to keep track of, but trust us when we tell you you’re most likely to find your next professional and/or personal opportunity through networking. It's the #1 unwritten rule to professional success.
We all need a squad, a sounding board, a personal board of directors, and those advantageous, often unplanned, introductions to help us navigate the landscapes of our lives and trajectories of our careers. Have you made the effort to cultivate yours? Just like a retirement fund - you can’t wait until the moment you need it - to begin creating it.
Our accomplished speakers will dive in and discuss:
- How do we nurture true connections in this digital age?
- How do I best engage with my network?
- How do I better get to know my connections?
- How do I keep these relationships top-of-mind in a world where we are often rushing from one appointment to the next?
- How to I share my business opportunities without sounding desperate or too salesy?
Light refreshments and plenty of time to network will be included alongside the talk at this great event. All welcome!
