About the Program

Because you are the face of your association, your networking skills can influence your success in engaging and retaining members. Attending business networking events and meeting new/potential members can be a dreaded activity for introverts. Learn how you can incorporate strategies that maximize your efforts and create positive connections.

During this Learn@Lunch, you'll learn how to make a positive first impression when interacting at networking functions through:

  • Confident introductions
  • The art of small talk
  • Creating genuine connections
  • Working a room
