Chatham-Kent: 09.22.20 *VIRTUAL* Networking Like a Pro

Are you afraid of uncomfortable introductions, awkward silences, and retreating to the food table for safety? What's the first thing that comes into your mind when you walk into a room full of strangers? "Stranger Danger!" Networking is one of the most important marketing tools for individuals and businesses to ensure their long-term success. Yet, it is one of the most intimidating, time consuming, and poorly executed methods used. But it doesn't have to be like that! Networking is a learnable skill that even the most introverted people can learn to do with ease.

This presentation will give you a quick overview of the what, when, where, why and how to network like a pro, as well as the most common mistake people make. Learn how to politely break into conversations, introduce yourself and others, make small talk and start building meaningful relationships that will help you succeed. Put Stranger Danger behind you and learn to network like a pro!
