From Collecting to Connecting: Taking your Networking to the Next Level
Tue, March 28, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM BST
Networking is a critical skill, but to get the most out of it you need to move beyond simply 'collecting’ contacts to ‘connecting’ with people, i.e. building two-way, mutually-beneficial relationships. This interactive session will look at what it takes to develop these higher-level network-building habits and help attendees practice both asking for and offering help.
The session will cover:
• The link between diversity, network conversations and innovation
• The four conversations a great networker has
• Increasing your ability to get things done and supporting others to be successful
• A networking game 17 in ’17
Light refreshments will be served.
Lin McDevitt-Pugh is an expert in building and using networks as resources.
Born in Australia and educated in Papua New Guinea, she visited Europe as a young human rights activist, fell in love in the Netherlands and stayed.
Lin's passion for networks stems from her passion for communities and the idea that together we can accomplish so much more than separately. She has trained everyone from women entrepreneurs in Africa and refugees in the Netherlands to IT practitioners in European banks, to build and harness their networks.
Lin is the author of So You Think You Can’t Network: A guide to using your connections as resources (which will be on sale at the event) and has an MBA from Henley Management College.
