Engineering Your Networking Experience
Tuesday, 26 January 2021 12 Noon to 1:00 PM Eastern time (GMT-5)
As professional communicators, we are adept at researching audiences and topics, preparing for document launches, and crafting what will be written in our documentation. So why don’t we use these skills when attending events where there will be opportunities to network? Come to this session to gain a new perspective on networking, use your skills to make the most out of the networking opportunities, and learn tactics for engineering your own networking experiences for maximum effectiveness and enjoyment.
We’ll start with why you should attend networking events as some motivation, then set the stage for your experience with myths and truths about networking. The bulk of what we’ll cover will be what to do before, during, and after a networking events to get more out of them.
- Learn what to do before networking events to get the most out of them
- Learn how to act when you get there to make the most out of your time
- Learn why what you do after the event is the most important part of the process
This session will provide advice and experience from an introvert who has researched this topic, used these tactics, and enjoyed (almost) every minute of it! Advice will be applicable to both in-person and virtual events.
