Do you feel like your small talk game is non-existent?
Have you recently pivoted in your business or career and find yourself unsure how to make meaningful connections at events?
Do you ever get sweaty palms, dry mouth, or have your mind go blank when you try to network?
Do you ever feel like you’re throwing spaghetti at a wall when you walk into an event, hoping that some connection will pan out and make it worth your while?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then this workshop is for you!
Learn some useful strategies for planning your networking experience at events. We’ll share best practices on how to make meaningful connections, and take the uncertainty out of networking. And… It wouldn’t be a workshop without some actual networking practice. (So, hopefully, you’ll also leave with some new connections.)
Come hone your skills before Radically Rural! This is perfect for first-time networkers, timid networkers, or anyone who wants to gain a little confidence and strategize before the next networking opportunity.
