Exploring the principles and practices that can help us painlessly and purposefully meet the people we want to meet.

Networking is so often the last thing we want to do. A daunting prospect, a necessary evil in modern work. How can we re-frame this, and treat networking as a way to practice and build our communication skills and create meaningful new connections in the process?

We'll cover:

• Our purpose for networking

• The habits of great networkers

• Playing to natural strengths

• Applying simple listening techniques

• The roe of trust and how to build it

• Reciprocity

• The impact of 'Root, Stem, Branch' thinking

• Networking in the digital age
