Build Your Network

This webinar provides a basic understanding of networking types, and tips on how to benefit from networking

When you think of networking, do you think conferences and salespeople? The reality is networking is not about selling, but about building meaningful connections, which may provide benefit to both parties and anyone can do it. It takes many forms, and can open up new opportunities you may not have had access before.

By understanding what networking means and applies to you, and what your goals are, you can use your network to help yourself and others.

In this one hour webinar, Cory Pearson (founder of the New to Dunedin Network) will take you through ways on how to build your network, how to develop a networking strategy to suit you, and how to leverage your networks.
