Event Description:
You walk confidently into a meeting room full of potential colleagues. You have researched your targets, so you boldly walk up to introduce yourself, politely addressing them by name. You ignite the conversation with a brilliant elevator speech, the result of being armed with your personal brand. They are captivated by your charm, focus, and presence—you have commanded their attention. A meaningful discussion ensues that proves to these colleagues they need to speak further with you. Congratulations. You have just earned a seat at their table with your razor sharp networking skills!

Develop these networking skills in this hands-on workshop. Since you are aware of your personal brand, we will begin by creating Your Personal Network. This invaluable tool is the life blood of your career. Explore shared tips for developing and managing your brand, formulate elevator speeches to quickly gain your contact’s attention, and practice through supportive and fun role playing. We will all go to an actual networking event on Friday, December 7 from 7:30–9:30 AM and put all of your newly honed skills into action! You will be paired with a “wingman” who will be evaluating your skills while cheering you on. This will be a wonderful culmination of everything you have learned!

Prerequisite: Networking: Personal Branding.
