If you ask ten people about their worst experiences with networking, you’ll probably hear about feelings of awkwardness, embarrassment, inadequacy, and ineffectiveness. But networking doesn’t have to be like this. In fact, networking can be radically different.
In this webinar, Maya Townsend will share how to get back in touch with the core purpose of networking. Participants will learn how to create sustainable practices that work for introverts, engineers, scientists, technologists, and others who may shy from traditional networking expectations. She will touch on the important role of mentors and sponsors and share simple actions that significantly increase the health of your network. You will learn:
- The real purpose of networking
- Three networks everyone needs and how to develop them
- The critical roles of a mentor and sponsor and how to fill those roles
- Simple and sustainable networking techniques that are well suited to introverts, scientists, technologists and engineers
