Learn to Love Networking!

Are you a seasoned pro at networking? Or does the thought of it fill you with dread? Or perhaps you do it, yet you don't really enjoy it? No matter what your thoughts are about networking, this is the event for you!

We know that it is the strength and diversity of our networks that opens doors. People who know, like and trust you, who understand and appreciate the value you bring, will make introductions that provide greater opportunities. This is particularly relevant for freelancers and those who are considering a Not9to5 career. Whether it is online or in real life, building and maintaining your networks is an essential skill.

This two hour practical workshop focuses on honing your networking skills with emphasis on real life interactions. It is designed as a practical and lighthearted way to learn and refine core skills and connect with those individuals in the room and your wider network.

At the end of this session you will be able to attract more opportunities and tackle any networking event with confidence.

We will cover:

  • Tips for preparing to network

  • Conversation techniques to be a successful networker

  • Basic listening and body language skills that are often overlooked

  • Building rapport with others face to face

  • Tips for making a polite exit

This workshop will be facilitated by Lucy Gower who is a trainer, coach and consultant specialising in developing creative, collaborative, high performing and innovative teams.
