Gain the confidence to take advantage of any networking opportunity that presents itself at our Networking Skills workshop on Friday 12th October.
During the exclusive half-day workshop for up to 12 participants we will work through the six stages of networking, namely Preparation; First impressions; Building rapport; Getting down to business; Escape; Follow-up and encourage participants to use their own experience and setting to make it relevant for them.
We ask participants to share their experience, both what they find difficult and what they feel works for them. We then construct scenarios using both a professional actor and the participants so that all can participate in any particular situation e.g. breaking into a group, breaking off a conversation and moving on etc. Scenarios can address meeting at a conference or entertaining clients in a variety of situations e.g. a client reception or dinner or, for example, at a sporting event.
In this way, participants not only learn what they can do in any given situation but also see for themselves that what they are doing really works for them. From this comes the confidence to do it for real. The session is highly practical, instructive and fun.
At the end of this workshop, you will understand and be confident to:
- Prepare effectively before attending an event
- Join and leave groups
- Initiate, lead and break off conversations
- Leave the other person feeling good about you and knowing what you can do for them
- Discover the needs and wants of the other person
- Sell yourself as an individual
- Give a focused and engaging answer to the “…and what do you do?” question
- How to follow up effectively
