Navigating Networking: Virtually and IRL

Presenter: Sandy Sloane

Navigating Networking IRL (In Real Life) and Virtually

During the pandemic, virtual networking became the new normal for making connections. Many events that switched to virtual are now going back to live. But others are continuing online. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to feel comfortable with both formats.

Even though meeting people is just a click or handshake away, most professionals are still a bit lost when connecting with others.

Navigating Networking IRL and Virtually will provide best practices to use to make sure both your ZOOM and IN THE ROOM networking BOOM instead of BOMB. Taught by Sandy Sloane, President of Solutions by Sloane, this webinar is for anyone looking to up their networking for professional and personal gain. You’ll learn how to connect with others, the importance of elevator pitches and follow-up, and the number one secret of effective networking.

Key Learning #1: #1 secret of effective networking

Key Learning #2: how to cultivate your existing network

Key Learning #3: easy ways to make small talk
