Networking fun? Do you think networking is similar to having a root canal—necessary but painful? It really doesn’t have to be. Believe it or not, networking can be both fun and effective.
Frans VanOudenallen, a Career Coach in Marketing and Branding at the Olin Business School, an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Webster University, and a mentor at InnovateVMS will share with us the secrets to making networking an enjoyable experience.
Even if you consider yourself a true introvert, you, too, can become an expert networker and will even have fun becoming one. With VanOudenallen’s four-stage process, you’ll gain the tools you need to master the art of networking.  Together we will explore a framework for Genuine Engagement that will help you:
  • Understand who you are and what you have to offer
  • Discover how to take the first steps to communicate your brand to others
  • Learn how to take control of your networking efforts
  • Engage others through a networking interview process that will enable you to land the job of your dreams
After this session, you will not only conquer your fear of networking but welcome the opportunity. Register today to discover how easy and effective networking can be!
