    The Art of Networking Confidently
    Today's savvy networker understands that networking opportunities are all around and uses a mix of in-person, online and follow-up communications to build and leverage a strong and connected network. Yet despite the clear benefits of networking, as many as half of all professionals feel uncomfortable attending large face-to-face events, and many more don't know the best techniques for relationship building.
    In this session, Laurie Lonsdorf shares her secrets to becoming a confident and effective networker and the keys to growing a thriving network. You'll learn techniques to easily navigate any event, how to approach others, and how to engage in meaningful conversation. You'll discover how to create a consistent follow-up system, including tools, frequency, as well as which communications connect with each generation, so you can ultimately turn your conversations into business relationships.
    Both new and experienced networkers will benefit from this training.
