We all know what online tools are out there, but the true power of networking is the personal connections we make. In this workshop we go back to basics and talk about how to approach building meaningful connections together. What is a sponsor? What is a mentor? What is the power of a reciprocal relationship?
This "Human Network Effect" workshop will begin with a brief presentation about cultivating connections followed by team breakouts where we will have the opportunity for small group discussions focused on relevant case studies. This workshop is designed to be fun and interactive, drawing from all of our collective experiences!
