Networking Skill: A building block for a strong community

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” . This common expression is the basis for understanding the importance of networking as a STRATEGY for personal development as well as career development.


Though networking is an important skill and one that can certainly be taught, it rarely is. Therefore the activities in this workshop becomes a good platform for participants to fully understand what strategic networking really is, separating the common perception of networking to just being an act of schmoozing.


This workshop also focuses on the process of networking and its relevance and importance to personal and career development. Participants will learn about taking initiatives and overcoming fear (which is quite common), as well as potential guidelines to consider when using social networks, texting and email for networking purposes.


Participants will have the opportunity to create a solid networking roadmap as a strategy to connect and achieve their objective, armed with a more collaborative mindset.
