Networking: The Whys and Hows

By Emily Carpenter and Sue Schnorr


We've all been taught that "networking" is an important tool for advancing our personal and business endeavors, including job searches, business development, identifying trends and best practices and developing relationships, just to name a few. What does "networking" really mean? How does face-to-face networking align with today's Web 2.0 versions? What is the most effective way to go about each and use them to your advantage?

Join us as Susan Schnorr, President of Training Insights, Inc. and Emily Carpenter, owner of WhizBang! Websolutions, participate in a panel discussion on in-person and social networking. Susan and Emily will both spend a few minutes setting the stage by introducing their area of expertise followed by a full 40 minutes for your questions. In addition, a pre-event survey will be conducted via the ticket registration site to gather your specific topics of interest.

A buffet dinner will be served and afford all an opportunity to engage in some networking prior to the panel discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!
