Brown Bag Lunch Seminar: Mix and Mingle at Networking Events

In this competitive day and age of high-potential succession planning, corporate and personal branding, the hidden job market, LinkedIn, and social selling, networking within and outside your organization has become a requirement in any profession for job-seeking, career-building and business development.

If you’re not a confident networker, it is vital to develop a game plan to successfully manage this increasingly important activity. Even if you’re a seasoned networker, new ideas can freshen things up and perhaps make you more effective.

In the seminar, you will learn how to:

  • Mix and mingle effectively at a networking event,
  • Introduce yourself effectively with a well crafted elevator pitch, and
  • Use coffee meetings effectively as an event follow-up.
