February Lean In Circle Lunch: Connection

The month of February is all about CONNECTION.  With both Valentine’s Day and “Gal”entine’s Day quickly approaching, what better time to talk about connecting in a professional environment!  The value of a properly leveraged network is limitless.  Specific strategies make networking engaging, fun and effective…And eye-opening to possibilities bigger than imagined! Whether within a company, an industry or a community, an expansive network helps connect resources to opportunities, both for yourself and on behalf of others.  Come join us for a Networking workshop in which we’ll explore the why and how of networking.

If you’re looking for a job, a mentor or some basic tips, you’ll walk away knowing:

  • The 2 essential skills to transform new contacts into valuable relationship
  • How a networking strategy impacts the depth of your network
  • Skills for introverts and extroverts alike
  • New connections with other attendees

This will be an opportunity to learn, practice and grow your network all in one.  You’ll be ready to rock your next networking event.  For anyone who’s ever questioned what she gets out of networking or wonders why her connections haven’t amounted to anything, this is the session for you!  And, if you simply want to amp up your networking game, this is a fit as well!  The time to network and grow connections is NOW.  Come celebrate Gal-entine’s Day by networking with the amazing women of WOGA on the 13th!
