CharityVillage Webinar: Networking Without the Butterflies @ Online
Aug 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

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?

Skill Level: Intermediate. This session will go beyond a simple introduction to networking and will be useful to mid-career professionals.

Key learning points include:

  • Understand the various approaches to networking, and the circumstances when each is most effective
  • Understand your current brand, or the impression you leave behind
  • How to tell your unique career story
  • How to define, then articulate your value proposition
  • Practical exercises to get ready and confident to “get out there” and grow your network

This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.
