About the Session

The workshop covers five areas of networking: why it matters; how to assess and build a network; tools and techniques of networking; social intelligence & social conversations; and follow-up & follow-through. Students finesse their networking skills using real-world examples and role-playing exercises with fellow attendees and acquire a conceptual understanding of networking principles as well as the practical tools with which to implement them.
