Your Roadmap to Successful Connections: Navigating Networking like an Expert (WINspired Breakfast)
Whether you're in business for yourself or building your career in the corporate world, the old adage still applies: "it's not what you know, it's who you know (and who knows you!)." But how do you go about connecting with the people you need to know to further your career or grow your business? There are nuances that most people overlook. When you are mindful about the process and make a few simple tweaks, you will elevate the quality of your networking experiences - and the connections you make.
The way people network is changing. It's more important than ever to have a plan to ensure you select the right networking opportunities, leverage your networking experiences, and to make sure you position yourself as a go-to resource for your connections. We'll discuss what your plan might look like, and how to navigate networking like a pro.
