Do you feel awkward at networking events and uncomfortable making new connections? Do you miss opportunities to connect with community members and colleagues because you don’t know the best way to approach them at events? Do you have trouble ending conversations gracefully so you can keep circulating?
Attend this fast-paced, fun & interactive training.
This engaging session will offer tips and tricks to help extroverts AND introverts. We will cover the basics of how to work a room, from having the right tools to knowing the best approach to engage prospective donors and collaborators while cultivating community support.
This training will give you the confidence to pursue your personal and professional goals - from the importance of shaking hands and making eye contact, to tips on the best opening line and how to exit a conversation gracefully. An amazing side benefit is that you'll learn how to create a welcoming community space by keeping an eye out for outliers, considering yourself a host instead of a guest and knowing how to compliment someone without "othering" them.
