NETWORKING TRAINING: HOW TO WORK A ROOM


Hate the thought of networking? Want to learn how to get the results you need from the events you attend?

Walking into a room full of strangers can be daunting for most people - even 'seasoned' networkers! For many, the fear of networking at events stops them attending or has them standing unsure at the edge of the room, missing out on expanding their professional network, or raising their personal profile and the profile of their business.

Change your perspective and improve confidence with our invaluable 'How To Work A Room' workshop, a must attend event if you are a new networker, or looking to become more effective. The training, which includes an interactive Q&A session, aims to remove barriers and eliminate fears by providing focus, practical tools, tips and relevant techniques, with content being shaped by participants' questions and concerns.

Following the training, you can practise your newly acquired skills over a light supper with up to 50 other participants.
