Networking is Dead:
Making Connections that Matter
… hoping your next networking event will be “the one”?
… collecting mountains of business cards?
… having countless breakfasts and lunches?
… thinking that you give much more than you get?
Then your way of networking is…DEAD.
With social networks, teleconferencing, and webinars, you are able to meet more people, in more ways, than ever before.
But how do you create new possibilities through connections that matter?
In this session
Larry Mohl will overview the ten lessons from his new book written with co-author Melissa G. Wilson that offers a new approach to fundamental networking misconceptions.
You will learn how to build an effective process that lets you:
•· Deepen existing relationships and make meaningful new ones
•· Connect across your own company to strengthen your business
•· Find people with similar values to embark on mutually beneficial opportunities
•· Leverage your connections instead of being overwhelmed by them.
