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!
