Building Your Network

The concept of ‘networking events’ is becoming increasingly popular in today’s business environment.  However daunting a room full of strangers may seem, the art of networking can help to expand business contacts, boost career prospects, and get you seen (and heard) by the right people. 

This module teaches participants how to make an entrance, work the room with confidence and be remembered – and, most importantly, to enjoy the process.

This module works well with the Listening and Responding Module, which focuses on the art of active listening, an essential component to Building your Network.  It also compliments the Storytelling module, which enables participants to master the art of telling engaging anecdotes and develop a flair for spontaneity.
