Online Event, SG


Networking is not just turning up at events and collecting business cards, it is about the exchange of ideas, creating relationships and connections with people, and to represent yourself confidently! Many skilled networkers start off being shy, but they pick up skills and competencies along the way to make them the natural networkers they are today. You can be like them too!

The Workshop

Feeling uncomfortable or unsure having to meet new people? Feeling anxious having to do a self-introduction at events? Or feeling uneasy because there is a business agenda behind the interaction? There are people who struggle with networking anxiety and view it as a daunting process. With some practice and knowledge, you will learn how to put yourself and others at ease. Network with confidence and maintain mutually beneficial connections.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to plan and approach a variety of networking situations more confidently, build rapport in business and social settings, and to improve your verbal and non-verbal communication for effective and meaningful networking.

Who Should Attend?

Everyone who is looking to overcome their shyness and to increase their confidence and ability to network is welcome to join us! This workshop is designed especially for beginner networkers to build a strong foundation in networking.
