Networking is a continuous and necessary part of your career development. If you want to move up, improve your bottom line, get your dream job or be an industry leader you need to always be networking.

"10% of hires happen through recruiters - 90% happen through networking" -- Lisa Rangel, Executive Resume Writer and LinkedIn Moderator.


In my presentation I will communicate the following:

  1. Definition of Networking
  2. Discuss Why We Network
  3. Drilling Down on Cultivation of Relationships
  4. How to Network – Face to Face and Digitally
  5. Do’s and Don’ts of Networking

The Goal of this Talk is to leave the attendees with:

  1. A better understanding of the importance of face to face and digital networking for professional growth and lead generation.
  2. A clear understanding of why and how to cultivate productive relationships.
  3. Tips on how to use social media to support your professional networking.
  4. Tips on how to create a robust digital presence that will support your professional networking.
