Effective networking is a fundamental competency that all business professionals need, though many don’t really know what networking is. 
The session will focus on the value of professional networking and practical, simple ways to build your network, so that the process becomes a more natural, ongoing activity. 

Participants will come away from the session with: 
  1. an understanding of what may be holding them back from networking, 
  2. effective ways to grow their network 
  3. increased comfort level when establishing new professional connections both in person and through social media (Ie. LinkedIn).
