Working the Room: Networking Made Simple

General Assembly

We all know networking is important but the actual experience of networking can be challenging. This workshop will take you through the entire networking experience – from planning to working the room to following up. We will start with pre-event planning including finding good networking opportunities, creating a introduction and identifying good contacts at events. You will then learn about the mechanics of working the room as well as tips and tricks for handling challenges at event. Finally, we will talk about effective follow up and how to maximize your networking reach. After the workshop there will be optional practice networking so you can put what you’ve learned to the test!
