Networking

Description

Business Networking is all about building relationships with professional contacts and potential clients; it’s a vital skill but not one that everyone feels comfortable or confident with.

This course gives participants the opportunity to learn how to network with confidence.

You’ll learn how to use your own style to put yourself and others at ease; the emphasis is very much on building relationships rather than on selling. Have you ever thought about how to shake hands with someone? On the course you will find out how to do so; you’ll also find out how to easily join and leave groups without feeling awkward or making excuses.

Learning occurs largely through discussions and practical exercises such as role plays. You may find yourself participating in whole group or small group discussions, working in pairs or by yourself using tools and techniques that will enable you to discover how to network effectively. The role paly exercises help to cement your learning and ensure you leave the course feeling more confident about entering networking situations.
