When you hear the words “networking event,” what immediately pops into your mind?
A fistful of business cards?
People aimlessly staring around the room looking for someone to talk to?
The awkward hesitation when you inevitably hear, “So what do YOU do?”
Networking doesn’t have to be lame. In fact, it’s one of the most priceless skills to connect with others, expand your influence and grow your career. It’s bad reputation comes from the fact that most people don’t know how to do it well – in a way that is genuine, exciting and rewarding for everyone involved.
When you have the skills it takes to connect with others, you have the power of finding the right person, at the right time. It could be an introduction to your next big client. It could be a critical referral to a doctor. It could be meeting your future wife or husband. Every great relationship begins with hello.

Each section of this course delivers insights into the art of networking. You’ll discover a step-by-step process that takes you from hesitation and overwhelm to genuine enthusiasm for meeting new people. Each short video lesson comes with exercises and resources to put the concepts into action immediately. In addition, you’ll receive a comprehensive workbook to help you along the way.
