Networking for Success in Victoria

Date: 
Saturday, March 18, 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

This workshop is perfect for newcomers and local residents who want to develop their networking skills. If you don’t already have a job, or just want to make new friends in Victoria, networking is a critical skill, yet many people have a strong aversion to the concept of networking. They may think it means being “salesy” or ‘fake” and yet it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ll help you to show up at networking events authentically and in a way that others will want to connect with you.
