  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • 55 John Street, Metro Hall, Toronto


Description: Networking is a must-have capability and an essential professional competency for employees and entrepreneurs at all levels. Yet, few people receive any training on how to network successfully and obtain solid results from their efforts. In this informative, interactive and entertaining seminar, participants will learn:
  • What networking really is (and what it is not)
  • The most common mistakes people make when networking (and we all make them)
  • Why a strong introduction is as essential as a business card (or more important!)
  • How to play all three networking roles
  • The power of asking (and why most of us hate to do it)
  • How to break through shyness (and feel comfortable networking with strangers)
  • Secrets of networking success
By the end of the session, participants will:
  • Improve their networking skills with proven and practical techniques that can be implemented immediately.
  • Develop a strong and engaging personal introduction.
  • Have multiple offers of support from other participants that address a real-life need identified by the participant.
  • Have proof in their hands that networking works!
