Women In Business
Are You REALLY Networking? Or just Collecting Cards.
Yes, networking is all the rage these days, but are you effectively networking? Do you have a strategy, a plan of who you're talking to and what you're looking for? Or are you merely collecting business cards and adding LinkedIn connections? Networking is more than meeting a million people and sending them a stock business pitch. Networking is building relationships, and taking the time to do so. Networking requires critical communication skills that include both listening and messaging.
Hear from our speakers Ellyn Caruso and Carol Jambor-Smith, on the effective ways to pull off the ultimate challenge of effective networking.
