About this event

Networking is such a personal activity, it is not a one size fits all practice. Most people get bogged down in the details and miss out on the foundation of how to build and retain an effective network. At the end of the day, no one cares WHAT you do, but do you know them, like them, or trust them?

In an industry built on the power of connecting face-to-face, establishing, and growing meaningful relationships is undeniably critical to long-term success. In this presentation, networking concierge Ashley Owens shares ways to nurture your current business relationships so that you can create your own tactical, individualized approach.

You will learn how to save time by recognizing the best strategic partners and effectively engaging contacts by using email, messaging social media, and other digital tools. Dive in and engage with your peers in this highly interactive workshop where you learn how to balance your strengths, and network strategically with confidence.
