Startup founders and entrepreneurs generally understand the importance of networking but fail to have a functional networking plan. Lack of money, resources and time prevent them from taking full advantage of potential networking opportunities. Making good connections, getting a qualified lead or referral can definitely make a huge significance in your ventures.
In this workshop, we will properly prepare you for your next networking event or chance encounter. You will learn the best ways to approach people you do not know, make good and relevant conversations and follow up in a meaningful and strategic way. We will have lively discussion, a game and exercise your networking muscles. You will learn how to effectively network from start to finish...and beyond!
