Workshop: Networking 101, followed by WiDS Fall Reception

Networking for Results

We all know the value of networking, but when was the last time someone gave you professional advice on what to do when you walk into that room?

We are excited to have North America’s Networking Guru, Michael Hughes, host a Networking for Results session for our WiDS membership at the KPMG office in Ottawa. During this 90-minute session, Michael will address the most common networking myths, explore secret network principles, and discuss success strategies for creating and leveraging a network of relationships. Participants will take part in skill-building exercises and discover how to maximize every networking contact.

Don’t miss this opportunity to build your interpersonal and relationship-building skills.
