Event Details

Many well-recognized business leaders attribute their success to building relationships. Their networks helped them open doors, solve problems and achieve greatness. So why do so many people call networking unimportant, unproductive, uncomfortable, a waste of time? Because they mostly approach networking randomly.

Make your networking strategic like so many other things you do, and you will create opportunities for lifelong rewards. In one evening, you will:

- learn the five W's of strategic networking that will have you identifying your networking purpose with targeted connections

- the importance of preparing multiple elevator speeches from seconds to minutes, to be ready for varying circumstances

- how to build personal brand — the stuff you bring to your strategic networking that creates your "star" power and makes the process easier

The result: Your strategic networking will contribute to your success, increase your productivity, make the process comfortable, and improve the returns on your time spent connecting to people.
