Stop Networking & Start Building Relationships

It is time to reframe how we think about networking. Learn how focusing your energy on developing an authentic personal brand and pursuing genuine relationships can flip the tired networking game and create more meaningful and fruitful opportunities.

With the right skills and practice you can take what is sometimes an intimidating and hopeful practice and make it a purposeful endeavor that delivers results. Attendees will enjoy real world stories and leave with the tools to confidently walk into their next networking event at ease.
