Secrets of Master Networkers
Speaker: Ingrid Edstrom
Congratulations! You made it to an event. Now what? As much as most of us are well-adjusted adults who learned to make friends back in grade school, even the most extroverted class-clowns still feel awkward in new social situations, particularly where there is pressure to be professional, make a good impression, and produce the results we are hoping for.
Believe it or not, networking is a learned skill, not some innate, magical gift reserved for the people you see schmoozing it up at networking events. Regardless of your previous networking experience and current comfort level, you will find this interactive workshop to be a fun way to enhance your WESO experience, giving you the tools to make the most of the potential relationships you can build here.
Join Ingrid Edstrom of Polymath LLC and AskABookkeeper.com and discover:
- Why networking is an important part of every business
- Your company's unique network strategy
- Your personal networking personality and strengths
- Tools to get out of your own way and step forward as a leader
- Immediate action items to establish the relationships that will bring the results you want
