Business Networking for Engineers Who Kind of Hate Networking
Jacqueline Ross, Certified Life Coach

Graham Celine, Marketer

Do you dread the notion of going to a networking event and “making small talk”? Do you avoid social media because you value your privacy? Would you rather read a good book than mingle with people you don’t know? If you answered yes to any other of these questions, please join certified Life Coach, Jackie Ross, and Social Media Marketing Specialist, Graham Celine, for a dynamic, engaging and value added workshop entitled “Networking for those People that Hate Networking!” This workshop will bolster your attitude and perspective about networking by discussing why we network and adjusting your “networking mindset”. In addition, we will provide you with practical tips and strategies to maximize your networking tool belt in order to increase and strengthen your business visibility utilizing in-person and social media networking connections.
