Does the idea of networking fill your stomach with butterflies? Join our free webinar and learn new tools and strategies to help you approach networking in a more confident and organized manner.
Building and maintaining your professional network is akin to planting the seeds of career success. Equally as important is developing a networking strategy and refining your targeted communication for different touchpoints. Your personal brand is the impression you leave with people. All of your interactions serve to reinforce this brand, so why not be thoughtful and deliberate about the impression you are leaving behind?

What's a webinar?
Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!
"Terrific webinar! I appreciate the concise presentation. A lot of helpful information was shared over the hour. The presenter was excellent! Thank you."
