Make The Most Of Networking

Our one-day networking skills course addresses common misconceptions about what business networking is, and what it is not. It covers the key aspects required for creating a successful and efficient networking strategy both on and offline, as well as the four ingredients needed to consistently generate referrals and opportunities.

The course will highlight key networking blunders and how to avoid them, how to make a positive first impression, how to “work a room”, how to deploy icebreaker questions, and exiting a conversation with skill and ease.
