The Course – 1 Day 

In this world, very few aspects of business are done in isolation. Many projects are conducted in collaboration with professionals in other disciplines, and new ideas are frequently sparked by conversations with other experts. Moreover, having a career in business is often helped by knowing people who have a position to fill, or who can point you to those who do. Therefore, meeting people who can give you valuable information about how to enter a new work sector is crucial.

Most professionals know that networking is important for success, whether in their industry or career, but many still find the mere word off-putting. For many individuals, the thought of stepping into a room full of strangers and striking up forced, superficial conversations over wine and cheese cubes can produce anxiety.

Good networking requires a genuine conversation about your interests, those of the other person, and how they may benefit each other. Getting to the point where networking is a pleasure instead of an inconvenience, however, may not be easy. It often takes skill, and practice, to start enjoying and reaping the benefits of networking.

  • Managers with new responsibilities around client-facing activities who lack confidence.
