Growing your network in an authentic manner with a focus on real connection is a skill that must be developed and practiced.

Making a real connection is not difficult, it requires generosity and full engagement.

This workshop will give ample opportunity to practice your new skills with a facilitated speed networking format. You’ll learn how to:
