What's On

If the word 'networking' sounds distasteful to you, you're not alone. From trainees to CEOs, there has been a belief that this is an area best left to salespeople and the desperate. Nonetheless, in this world of thinning patience, accelerated social judgement and decelerating interpersonal communication skills, the ability to connect with another is fast becoming a must-have attribute in both business and life. This workshop will empower people who want to elevate their success, confidence and personal brand with the ability to move with ease in social and business situations.

This workshop will give participants practical tips and equip them with the necessary commercial skills for effective and enjoyable business networking and relationship-building.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:
• Have greater confidence, poise and presence when presenting themselves at professional mixers and other social settings
• Have increased skills in networking protocols so as to project the image of both themselves and their firm in a highly positive manner
• Conduct themselves in a professional yet relaxed, natural way
