NETWORKING TRAINING: HOW TO WORK A ROOM


Hate the thought of networking? Want to learn how to network on your own terms?

Walking into a room full of strangers can be daunting for most people - even 'seasoned' networkers! For many people, the fear of networking at events stops them attending or has them standing at the edge of the room not knowing what to do and therefore missing out on expanding their number of business contacts and raising their profile and the profile of their business.

Our 'how to work a room' surgery aims to remove some of these barriers to networking by providing some focus for attending events, examining the 'risks' involved, as well as how to reduce and manage them and improving confidence with some practical tools and tips.

    NETWORKING TRAINING: HOW TO WORK A ROOM


    Hate the thought of networking? Want to learn how to network on your own terms?

    Walking into a room full of strangers can be daunting for most people - even 'seasoned' networkers! For many people, the fear of networking at events stops them attending or has them standing at the edge of the room not knowing what to do and therefore missing out on expanding their number of business contacts and raising their profile and the profile of their business.

    Our 'how to work a room' surgery aims to remove some of these barriers to networking by providing some focus for attending events, examining the 'risks' involved, as well as how to reduce and manage them and improving confidence with some practical tools and tips.

    Workshop leader Heather White, Networking Architect, Smarter Networking
    At London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, 33 Queen Street, London EC4R 1AP
    Time 5.45pm - 8.30pm
    For more information contact the Events Team:  E: events@londonchamber.co.uk or T: +44 (0)20 7203 1700
