F*ck Being Humble presents: Aint no shame, mastering the art of networking
Inspired by the true words from Missy Elliot, our second event “Ain’t no shame” will help you to get over the fear of networking. Despite what you may already think, nobody is born a networker. There's a skill and craft to it, one that takes time, a good strategy and a persistent follow up to nail. With the right preparation, networking has the opportunity to open so many doors, so it’s time to stop burying your head in the sand until you retire and start seeing the potential in talking to complete strangers for fun.
And even if you can’t imagine signing yourself up to networking events, digital networking can be equally as successful and done from the comfort of your own home. So whether it's drumming up new freelance work or building new connections, we want to help!
Things you'll learn:
- How to change your view on networking
- How to prepare for maximum opportunities
- How to not come across like a robot or self indulgent
- How to follow up effectively
- How to utilise your communication skills outside of networking
