“Network your way to the top.”
"Never eat lunch alone."
“Always say yes."
“Just get out there!”

Phrases like these, as well as typical networking events, can make an introvert want to hide in the bathroom. But we want to destroy the myth that extroversion is the key to success. Join us for our Jam Session with Morra Aarons-Mele for tips and strategies to business growth that won't make you want to hide. Morra will share stories and skills to help you:

  • build your professional network
  • sell and negotiate like yourself
  • ace public events
  • create a strong personal brand
  • and manage anxiety at work.

You'll leave with new insights and a few solid skills to grow your career and define your success for yourself.

Morra Aarons-Mele is the founder of award-winning digital agency Women Online and its database of women influencers, The Mission List. She is the author of Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home), out now.

I'm very much looking forward to this session. A great read on the topic is Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain.

Agreed. Great choice of a topic. I hope you will make the session available afterwards for those of us who can't listen in real time. And I'd like to recommend a great read - Susan Cain's life-changing book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking."

Perfect timing. I'm going to be at a trade conference while this jam session is taking place. It'll be a boost to my morale.
