Do you feel bees in your belly at the word networking? Ever wonder how, when, where, or why to network? Does going to events alone fill you with dread? Are you biting your nails at the very idea you’ll be talking to new people in this interactive workshop? Well, this March session aims to take the sting out of networking for you!
Join Lynn Slobogian as she leads participants through a 90-minute interactive discussion about networking and her approach to it. We’ll be a hive of activity as we share questions, fears, and ideas, while also getting some practice together in small and large groups. Come out and be-e prepared to have some fun! Non-editing friends are welcome.
