Please provide a short description of your session.
Creating a network is about creating a community of people who help you, and who you can help. It’s not about fishing for clients and it shouldn’t feel icky. It should be invigorating and inspiring. In this session, learn how to maximize networking opportunities based on Shelagh’s principle of #givetoget. Give first, so you create opportunities to benefit both the people you meet and to accelerate your business growth.
Tell us your networking advice.
Networking is not about shoving your business card in the hands of unsuspecting victims. It’s about meeting other like minded people and figuring out if you can help them with any challenges they are experiencing, or more importantly, if they can help YOU with any challenges you are experiencing. Networking authentically is based on the principle of #givetoget and building authentic relationships to accelerate business growth.
