The end goal of networking is not collecting the most connections, but making the right moves to make meaningful connections that will last a lifetime.  Kick-off your morning with super-charged interactive workshop that will give new meaning to the networking hustle.

  • Build confidence and learn how to get out of your own way and successfully network with a purpose;
  • Hear why the human-to-human connection and building relationships with authenticity will yield the best results; and
  • Develop a plan for adding value to your contacts without expectations of the "1-for-me-1-for-you" mentality.
