Building Your Network21st October 2014
Increasing self-awareness and impact for better networking
This Networking thing: what is it exactly? What does it mean? Why has it spread like an air-borne virus infecting events left, right and center – conferences, meetings, workshops, the list goes on.
An entire event genre has been named after it: ‘The Networking Event’. It’s even become a verb: ‘to Network’. Just imagine all those English language students sitting in class conjugating the verb: I network, you network, he networks, she networks, we network … the mind boggles..”
Join us for an interactive session on how we can improve our impact in networking.
